Personal Life and Work[edit]

Ryder Carroll emigrated to the United States from Vienna, Austria in the late 1990s, to attend college. After college he worked as an app, game and website designer.[2] Diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder at a young age, he started working on the Bullet Journal system in the 1990s[1] and ended up creating a way of note taking that helped him focus on multiple things during a shorter period of time. [3]

Kickstarter[edit]

In September 2014, he launched the Bullet Journal Kickstarter Campaign to centralize the bullet journal community through a new website. He reached his fundraising goal in eight hours and raised close to $80,000 by the end of his campaign.[2]

Appearances on Stationery Podcasts[edit]

Carroll has been a guest on two episodes of The Pen Addict (Podcast):

  • In Fall 2013 Carroll joined Brad Dowdy and Myke Hurley to discuss the concept of bullet journaling, and where it came from, on episode 70.
  • He again joined the podcast a year later (on episode 124) to discuss bullet journaling as the global phenomenon, the recent Kickstarter campaign, and the upcoming plans for the company.
