Ryan began knitting with his Baba (Grandmother) and shopping with his Mom when he was in preschool. It rarely crossed anyone's mind that he would end up working in the Fashion Industry.

Before finishing school, Ryan developed and sold a line of knitwear focused on creating unique pieces with subtle textures and surprising details. Ryan has previously taken on commissions for such things as knitting a scarf and pillows out of dog's hair (the owner asked for keepsakes), knitting a roll of alpaca white yarn onto a toilet paper roll for a bathroom showcase design and a standout 2012 collaboration with Of A Kind, the website founded by Erica Cerulo and Claire Mazur.

Currently based in Los Angeles and a recent graduate of Los Angeles Trade Tech with an AA degree in Fashion Design. Ryan is looking for design roles across all categories within companies in the Greater Los Angeles Area.
