Story

A multitasking millennial responsible for innovative marketing & creative content
Introduction
Ryan Pratt is a typical millennial who wears flip-flops to work and is always multitasking. He is an over-indulgent technophile and Star Wars-loving cinephile. He is a right-brained creative and a left-brained innovator. 

Ryan has a specialized background in marketing and content. 

He graduated from The Ohio State University in 2007 with a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and strong background in Fine Arts (Architecture, Art History, Cinema). Ryan has two independently certified IQ test scores of 144 and 133.

As the Marketing Director at MBA Focus, Ryan holds the primary responsibility for the execution and delivery of a wide variety of social, online, viral, direct, strategic, and brand marketing campaigns. He is not only responsible for promoting the virtual recruiting products to employers, but also helping business schools promote career services to their job-seeking candidates. His marketing plans and Web 2.o ideas have helped MBA Focus grow to now service over 70,000 employers and over 75,000 MBA students and alumni. With his help, MBA Focus has become an exclusive network where the world's top employers and talent connect.

Prior to joining the team at MBA Focus, Ryan gained invaluable entrepreneurial experience with the rapidly growing startup ListAfterList.com. As the VP of Marketing and minority partner, Ryan implemented business plans that drove website traffic from 0 to 3 million visitors annually and was a major reason for the 2008, 2009, and 2010 TechColumbus Innovation Awards “Outstanding Product” nominations.  He is still the site's top-rated and most-active lister. 

Ryan also worked as an independently contracted national movie critic for the Examiner.com. His attention-span-sensitive reviews were read by thousands of cinephiles every week. Though no longer writing his "See-it, Rent-it, Skip-it" column, Ryan continues to express his opinions on films through his blog and social networks. And in 2012, as a member of Warner Bros. Blu-ray Elite Team, Ryan wrote about and hosted movie viewing parties in an effort to promote adoption of the high-definition format.

Ryan currently resides in Dublin, Ohio just minutes from: the office at MBA Focus where he works; the Scioto River where he kayaks and water skis; the studio where he filmed an infomercial for Resistance Wear (a company he would later consult for); Ohio Stadium where his football Buckeyes continue to dominate the team from up north; Flannagan’s Irish pub and pool where he plays competitive sand volleyball; Chipotle where he eats too much too often; and Best Buy where he stands in line with other fanboys for the newest Apple technology. He was born and raised in Canton, Ohio, and has spent every summer of his life at his family cottages on the Finger Lakes in upstate New York.
