About Ryan

Hi! During the work day, I’m creating content, reimagining print stories for the web, and making GIFs at Washingtonian magazine. Outside of the office, I’m usually running around Arlington (literally), coming up with new recipes, curating my Pinterest boards, expanding my coding skills, and snapping up opportunities to take photos around Washington.

Before Washingtonian, I was a grad student and American University learning about interactive journalism. What is that? you might ask. For two years, I learned everything about how a digital platform newsroom operates, and how to be a one-woman backpack journalist. The program covered web development, writing for the web, photography, capturing and editing audio and video, storytelling, media entrepreneurship, data-based writing, data visualization, social media, and lastly, how to bring all of those skills together. It was one of the best experiences of my life.

Check out my most recent work below, and see what I’ve been writing on Medium and Washingtonian. If you’d like to get in touch, use the form below, shoot me a message on Twitter, or email me at ryan@ryanweisser.com. I also won’t protest if you want to peruse my Instagram feed and Pinterest boards 😉
