As a parent, Ryan has found a deep passion for creating exiting and inspiring learning spaces for children. He believes strongly that learning environments need to be flexible for the changing needs and interests of every student.
Ryan graduated with his Master of Architecture and a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from North Dakota State University. His thesis took a closer look at the role that community and private partnerships could take in creating strong learning environments.
At FNI Ryan has worked on projects through all phases of design from master planning to construction administration. Recent projects include master planning for the renovation of 3 high density primary schools for The Yew Chung International School in Hong Kong, recording studios for The Yew Chung Education Foundation (YCEF) in Beijing, Global Learning Center for The Yew Chung Education Foundation (YCEF) at the Chongqing Secondary School and most recently the new Fielding Nair International corporate headquarters in Minneapolis.
