Ryan King is the Digital Experience Designer at the Smithsonian’s Freer|Sackler Museums of Asian Art. An open source evangelist, he joined the Smithsonian as a graduate of the Corcoran College of Art + Design’s Exhibition Design M.A. program with a vision of fusing technology with the built museum environment. He was a Windgate Curatorial Fellow at the Museum of Contemporary Craft in Portland, Oregon, a fellow in the Getty NextGen Leadership Institute, and served as social media consultant at the Smithsonian National Museum of African Art before joining the Freer|Sackler. In addition to his daily coding and design work, Ryan is Co-Chair of the Smithsonian GLOBE (LGBTQ) Employee Group and an active member of the AAM LGBTQ Alliance. Art, food, thirsty plants, and lingering oxford commas keep him busy.
