However, I am Ryan, a west coast transplant and an ex-car designer from Detroit, currently living in Brooklyn with my amazing art director wife and our beautiful daughter. I enjoy single malts, video games, and things that go fast. And I occasionally make cool shit with great people for iconic global brands.

 

Open to full-time opportunities. Available for freelance.
