CEO and Founder of Apartment Therapy Media (which includes both Apartment Therapy and Kitchn), as well as a best selling author, Maxwell Ryan pioneered his career as the “apartment therapist,” traveling by scooter to his clients’ homes to help make their spaces beautiful, organized and healthy. In 2004, Maxwell launched the wildly popular Apartment Therapy blog. With a focus on reviewing stores, offering tips, posting photos of design projects, and answering readers’ questions, Apartment Therapy currently reaches 14 million unique visitors every month. This year, Maxwell marked his return to design with the launch of the Maxwell Ryan + canvas home tableware collection, followed by the Maxwell Ryan + Interior Define sofa collection. An inspiration to many creative business owners, Maxwell will share the story of his journey and business tactics at Etsy Up.
