Ryan Schmitz

AIA | Corporate

Growing up, Ryan’s favorite city to visit was Chicago. Traveling from his hometown, Sheboygan Falls, WI, the unique skyscrapers and architecture of the city left a profound impact on him. What was a family trip, sparked his interest in buildings and design that shaped his future path.

Ryan joined PRA in 2019, bringing 18 years of experience. Ryan has worked on a variety of projects including religious, education, higher education, non-profit, and community-based organizations. Today Ryan is a Project Manager and Associate in the PRA Corporate Design Studio, where he oversees projects and acts as a liaison between the design team, consultants, and the client. Ryan is driven by finding solutions to his client’s design challenges and transforming their visions into reality. He is passionate about cultivating client relationships and believes that listening to their wants and needs always results in project success.

When Ryan is away from work, he enjoys playing guitar with his band, playing league team trivia, barbecuing, and going on “ventures” with his family.
