Ryan Gerhardt

Copy Director, Worker-Owner

Guided by down-home sensibilities and an eagerness to entertain, Ryan brings an engaging, relatable writing style to reinforce the voice behind any nonprofit messaging project.

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

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