Ryan Cash

Life passes most people by while they're making grand plans for it


My name is Ryan Cash. I live in downtown Toronto, right by the water.

Some of my favourite things are driving, camping, photography, traveling, writing (here and on Svbtle), snowboarding, and discovering new music.

I love creating new things and working with great people.

Here’s a giant photo of my face:

What I do

I’m the Founder of Snowman

Snowman’s mission is to build apps that people will find helpful everyday – to stay more organized, to be more productive, and to have more fun.

We started with Checkmark, a reminder app for iPhone that specializes in location-based reminders. We then built Circles, a memory game for iPhone and iPad. Our most recent project was Super Squares, a puzzle game for both iPhone and iPad. Most recently we launched Checkmark 2, a brand new version of Checkmark built from the ground-up for iOS 7 and packed with new features.

What I used to do

I started working at Marketcircle back in May, 2007 – right before the first-ever iPhone was announced. I started off there in sales but quickly moved to directing the company’s marketing.

At Marketcircle I wore many hats; creative director for the website, PR liaison, advertising and media buyer, copywriter, and so on. I helped them successfully launch 6 new major products, including Billings 3, Billings Touch, Billings Pro, Daylite for iPhone & iPad, and finally, Daylite 4.

I left Marketcircle at the end of April 2012 to focus on my new startup – Snowman.
