About Ryan Craggs

My path has not been linear

Fresh out of college, I planned to pursue a PhD in Spanish literature. That changed after I started writing for a small magazine while I taught English in Madrid, Spain, which led me to pursue a masters degree at the Medill School of Journalism. Since then, I’ve worked in broadcast television, international news, travel media, fintech and affiliate marketing. Each stop taught me something, and I apply that varied experience to solve problems in creative ways.

Early in my career, I reported on camera, but for the last decade, I’ve focused on strategy more than on bylines. These days, I work as a marketing consultant and copywriter, with clients such as Prudential, Mercury and Architectural Digest, to name a few. I also conduct SEO audits for businesses to guide their internet presences.

My editorial work has appeared in SFGate, Houston Chronicle, Condé Nast Traveler, Learnvest, Columbia Journalism Review, Travel + Leisure, Coastal Living, Thrillist, Garuda Indonesia Colours Magazine and the Huffington Post.

My Story

Mostly, my blog posts are about projects I’m working on or the state of media and the work I do. Everyone needs an editor, including me, and without one here, there are bound to be typos and half-baked thoughts.
