Ryan Davis

Ryan Davis’s professional background is like an old recipe. Mix some of this with some of that and what comes out is a great treat. He is a marketer and waterman. The marketing side has evolved from learning the ropes of the digital world many years ago. Canvasback started as a local marketing company focusing on search engine optimization, web design, and social media management. Ryan grew up on the water. Literally. Family photos show him as an infant in a car seat on his dad’s 18’ Manatee. At the age of 12, he captained his first vessel — a 1966, 12-foot Starcraft v-bottom. His first date with his wife and subsequent engagement was on a boat. Currently, he is a Water Rescue 1 and 2 Technician. He also has commercially fished from North Carolina and has family involved with Tow Boat US. A business coach once mentioned to him that he ought to bring his expertise of digital marketing to the marine industry specifically. After all the years of working with companies in industries that he wasn’t familiar with, it only made sense to work with folks in all aspects of the maritime industry. He has a wife and two sons ages 10 and 7. In their free time, you’ll find the family crabbing the Chesapeake Bay tributaries or off-shore chasing Tuna & Marlin from Ocean City, MD to the Outer Banks of NC.
