CEO of Curate

In 2013, Ryan and his wife started special event company, Twisted Willow and realized that there was no adequate tool to automate the 18 different documents they had to keep in their wedding folders. In December of 2015, they officially launched Curate and have seen our growth skyrocket. They’ve been able to present their story of how they grew their shop at conferences internationally and locally.
