Ryan Kreiser

Communications and Engagement Manager & Acting Executive Director

Ryan is very excited to take on the brand-new role of Communications and Engagement Manager at the YLC. Having lived in New Orleans for three years, he looks forward to serving the community that he loves by helping to ensure that YLC continues to “leave a mark” on the Crescent City.

Prior to joining YLC, Ryan served as Patron Services and Digital Media Manager with the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra, Fund Development Associate for the Indiana University Foundation, and Public Relations Representative at the Indiana University Auditorium.

Ryan graduated from Indiana University’s School of Public and Environmental Affairs (SPEA) with a Bachelor of Science in Non-Profit Management. He also earned a minor in Trumpet Performance from Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music.

In his spare time, you can find Ryan playing trumpet with “Slow Danger,” a local Mardi Gras band, and honing his mixology skills by seeking out new and exciting cocktail recipes.
