More about Ryan
Digital artist and game developer Ryan Green unites creativity and technique to produce powerful gaming narratives. When his son Joel was battling terminal cancer until his death at age 4, Ryan used game design as a means to understand and explore the experience he was facing. His struggle resulted in “That Dragon, Cancer,” a videogame and memoir filled with meaningful interactive experiences that share his story. Previously, Ryan was a senior developer in the healthcare space, creating user-friendly interface for electronic health records at DaVita for Nephrology Physicians. He has also worked on various projects with Soma Games and Media Greenhouse. With his experience and passion, Ryan hopes to catalyze a gaming culture where relationships, narratives, and artistry are equally important as winning.
