Ryan Gerhardt

Driven by an eagerness to inform and entertain, Ryan brings an engaging, relatable writing style to all nonprofit messaging projects.

Prior to joining the Big Duck team, Ryan honed his communications skills across an array of applications — from book publishing and article writing, to copywriting work in the agency world and in-house marketing for a nonprofit. Ryan’s varied experiences help him craft unique voices and stories for any organization. He is a graduate of Syracuse University, where he studied both advertising and political science — something that comes in handy in the nonprofit sector.

When he’s not at Big Duck, Ryan can probably be found studying script techniques in recent films, enjoying a slice of pizza, or traversing the streets of Brooklyn to prepare for his next race.
