Ryan Staples is the Director of Creative Media at Smart Real Estate Coach. He joined the company in October 2018 and handles many areas of our digital branding and in-house marketing, including video production, graphic design, and web development.
He began designing websites when he was 10 years old. Not long after that, he got his hands on a camcorder and started playing with analog video editing, casting his younger brother and sister to act in sketches and short films that he wrote. In 2011, Ryan got an account management job at a business consulting firm, eventually working his way up to the position of Creative Director. He prides himself on the personal touch that he brings to media production work, ensuring that it’s coated with a professional sheen, but never looks automated or overly produced.
Ryan is a passionate fan of Boston Sports. In his free time, he enjoys reading, art, film, and writing as a creative outlet – be it short stories, novels, films or television scripts. He’s also been performing stand-up comedy since 2010, working all of the major clubs and casinos in the area. Ryan lives in Worcester, MA with his wife and son.
