Sports Marketing Expert
You become an expert in something with hard work, passion, heart, desire, sweat and tears. Growing up around sports, Ryan got to pursue his true calling after his playing days and took all his experiences to the sports marketing world.
Over the years Ryan has built, market and managed the official websites for top athletes such as Kenny “The Jet” Smith, Clinton Portis, William “The Fridge” Perry, Brendon Ayanbadejo, Brady Anderson, Dan Fouts, Danny White, Marcellus Wiley, Terrell Owens, Lawrence Taylor, Allen Iverson, Wayne Chrebet, Daunte Culpepper, Darren Collison, Jay Buhner, Ray Lankford, Dan Hampton and others.
Asides from athlete appearances, speaking engagements, autograph signings and endorsements, Ryan has created some viral athlete marketing campaigns (just for fun). For young aspiring sports entrepreneurs, here are his Tips to Get Involved in the Sports Marketing Field.
Being an Orlando resident and die hard Magic fan, in 2011, Ryan started the grass roots campaign, StayDwight.com, a fan community to help keep Dwight Howard secure in Orlando. With the departure of Shaq years ago and what we have seen happen in Cleveland with LeBron, he thought it was a must to help rally the community to show Dwight what he means to the city of Orlando and help keep the economy and local businesses going strong for years to come. Check out some of the campaign headlines receiving national exposure from SportsCenter, ESPN, Yahoo! Sports, CBSSports, NBCSports, AOL SportingNews, the Orlando Sentinel, TheStreet.com and NBA.com
