Ryan Patrick Killackey

Roles: Director, Producer, Writer

A Chicago native and graduate of The University of Montana, Killackey started his career as a wildlife biologist on various research projects studying frogs in freshwater lakes, tracking and live trapping wolverines, and as a wilderness ranger at a bear observatory in Alaska, but his passion was with amphibians.

After several years in the US, this passion lead him to the Ecuadorian Amazon and a transition to photography and film began in 2005. He has since worked on several projects for Giant Screen Films (3D/IMAX), National Geographic, PBS, Yale E360 and others.

Yasuni Man is Killackey’s first feature film.
