Ryan's Headshot

Ryan Fitzgerald

Senior SEO Strategist & Content Manager

Ryan moved to Colorado from the bleak wasteland that is Texas back in 2012 after bouncing around the west coast (and a stint in East Africa), but don’t hold the Texas thing against him. He has extensive experience in multi-platform digital marketing strategy, having specialized in paid search, SEO, and content development over the last six years. Ryan’s goal with every client is to best maximize their return on investment. He isn’t a quiet man, no matter how hard he tries, but his colleagues forgive him for it. When he’s not at the office you can find him at a concert, either getting down or shooting photos for the band. His die-hard love for the Packers is both a blessing and a curse. He lives for the written word, and that passion shows in his content strategy. He WILL correct your grammar, no matter how many times you tell him to stop.
