Meet The Lab Series Team!

Hello! I'm Ryan McKeithan, the Lab Series Director. I joined the team in Summer 2021 to help spread The Technique after many years working on the production side of the business. I'm passionate about helping find the stories you need to tell and getting them on the screen or on the stage. Happy to discuss the Labs, how they can help you with your work, and chat anytime. You can reach me at ryan@joanscheckel.com.

Hi! I'm Sonia Gannon, The Lab Series Producer. I'm currently on maternity leave with my newborn baby girl. :) I‘m into story, meaning, food, excel, my 3-year-old Chihuahua and making lists. 

I'm also into business operations, and I'm set on growing and spreading awareness of The Lab Series! Connecting students to the Labs and to each other is what gets me going.  The world needs your stories told in your voice, and to help connect you closer to that in any way is a true privilege.

My goal is to support you in your professional creative growth here at The Lab Series. I can't wait to hear about your work!
