MPR Welcomes Ryan Kissinger

Posted in Staff Members | November 23,2011

Miller Public Relations welcomes Canadian Ryan Kissinger aboard. Ryan serves alongside Michelle Davis, as our medical illustrator and 3-D animator. Originally hailing from the North Shore Mountains on the outskirts of Vancouver, he moved to Texas sight unseen.

Ryan started his undergraduate studies at the University of British Columbia thinking about 3-D animation but also with a strong interest in science. As he progressed through his studies, he became curious about the field of medical illustrating. He began his Master’s Studies in Medical Illustration at the University of Toronto, completing it in 2010. Ryan believes in approaching each project with a fresh perspective and an eye for accuracy and didacticism.

Ryan is the resident Miller Public Relations’ desk ergonomic trendsetter. Ryan used elevation blocks to raise his desk to precise OSHA standards. Soon, the other Miller Public Relations staff were sitting at his desk ohhing and ahhing. It wasn’t long until everyone’s desk was rising higher.

Ryan also possesses the smallest carbon footprint at Miller Public Relations. He rides a Brodie cyclocross bike 9 miles round trip to work, rain or shine. He has yet to encounter crazed Texas drivers on icy roads. Good luck on that, Ryan.

Jumping in on our clients’ causes, Ryan has been attempting to grow a moustache for Movember, a prostate cancer awareness fundraiser. If you get a magnifying glass, you can see his moustache in the thumbnail. You can donate to the cause at http://mobro.co/RyanMustachinger

Our staff has been pleased to teach Ryan the subtle nuancesof American culture, with recent efforts including a full explanation of  Thanksgiving. About his new state, Ryan says, “Everything is bigger inTexas, trucks, hair, and strip malls, and it is always sunny here.” Welcome aboard, Ryan.
