Ryan has been teaching, performing and writing about improv for nearly twenty years. He has taught and performed improv comedy all around Europe and Canada, and travels regularly to festivals to teach and perform.

More about improv


Ryan writes plays, feature articles, short film scripts, short fiction, comedy sketches and other stuff besides – including the blog on the right. Much of his writing he does for clients like ING, Heineken and Shell, but a great deal of it he does for himself.

Ryan helps individuals and businesses improve the ways they think and interact – internally and externally. Applied improv workshops and training sessions on a variety of topics are all right in his wheelhouse.
