Ryan is a nationally-recognized writer, director, and communications specialist who creates advertising and strategy for leading companies, campaigns and causes.  A partner at Consensus, his clients include numerous publicly-traded corporations, industry groups, party caucuses and political campaigns.

 Ryan’s work includes award-winning corporate TV spots and hundreds of ads for successful campaigns across the country—from Florida, North Carolina, Alabama, and Arkansas to Minnesota, Connecticut, Kentucky, and Virginia.  Ryan’s ads have also headlined The Drudge Report, scored millions of hits on YouTube, and earned coverage from Fox News, MSNBC, The Hill, RealClearPolitics, and many other national outlets.   

 In 2014, Ryan published a book on generational politics with Post Hill Press.  Upon its release, the new title quickly shot to the top of Amazon’s National Politics, Elections and Commentary sections. As an accomplished spokesman and ghostwriter, his work has appeared in most major print outlets in Florida, including the Tampa Bay Times, the Miami Herald, and the Orlando Sentinel.  

 Over the years, Ryan has served as spokesman for national organizations, statewide campaigns, and publicly-traded companies, appearing on Fox News and other notable TV and radio outlets.  He’s also a frequent public speaker on corporate media management, ad creation, and topical political subjects.  His work includes numerous published print and scholarly articles as well as documentary directing credits.

 Prior to joining Consensus Communications, Ryan was executive director of Florida’s historic Vote No on 4 campaign in 2010—a $16 million statewide campaign that transformed a 30-point deficit into a 2-to-1 victory.  He is also a veteran of Mel Martinez’s successful U.S. Senate bid in 2004 and an alumnus of his Senate staff.

Ryan was twice listed among Influence Magazine’s 100 most influential people in Florida Politics and was also honored among the Orlando Business Journal’s “40 under 40.”
