Greetings! I’m Ryan Burdzinski, graphic designer, artist and CEO of GeekHouse Studios. I grew up in Northern Ohio, and have been drawing and painting all of my life. When my friends wanted to play sports, I wanted to play with crayons and my Star Wars toys. So, naturally I ended up in the visual arts field, and I couldn’t be happier doing this line of work.
A little history
After dominating the local coloring contest circuit, and 4 fuzzy years in high school, I went off to study art and graphic design at Kent State University, where I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2006. After college I worked as a creative / graphic designer at a large telecommunications firm in Cleveland. I later landed a job at a travel host agency as the sole graphic designer, and worked on building their marketing department; hiring and managing more designers as time went on.
Tech geek… at your service
I love all things tech. I’m constantly reading about, discussing, and trying out the newest technology available. If there’s a new gadget coming out next Christmas, I know about it. And I’ve probably ordered one already.
I’m also a professional artist
My own series of original surrealist oil paintings have been featured in galleries around the country, from Akron, OH to Telluride, CO- all can be viewed at www.ryanburdzinski.com. Here I also maintain an art blog I review other artists’ work, post valuable content for new artists, as well as promote my own work.
