AKA "Churchie". Actor...Wirter... Director. ..Comedian... or "hyphenate" as they say in the urinals at CAA.
Ryan got his start as an actor and comedy writer at The Second City in Chicago Conservatory where he performed in many sketch and improv shows. He went on to perform and study as an actor/writer with Improv Olympic, The Free Associates, The Piven Theatre Workshop, and Acting Studio Chicago in Chicago. He also was on the Chicago Standup comedy circuit.
In Los Angeles, he studied at the ACME Sketch Comedy writing program and is a Main Stage Company alum.
As an actor Ryan has appeared in many TV shows and too many national commercials to count. As a director he was mentored under the tutelage of Alex Hardcastle on network TV shows such as The Crazy Ones (CBS), New Girl (FOX), The Mindy Project (FOX), Super Fun Night (ABC) starring Rebel Wilson, Mixology (ABC), Suburgatory (ABC) and Trophy Wife (ABC).
Mostly he likes the word 'tutelage'. When Ryan’s not auditioning, writing or directing , he throws stuff off a bridge somewhere or picks up his two weener dog's poop from the yard. Most of all he does what he does for his family including his new little boy, William.
