Ryan grew up in a Volvo 240 along the back roads of Interstate-75. His projects have screened at Cannes Film Festival and MoMa PS1, and his work has been featured in Interview, V Magazine, New York Magazine, Huffington Post, W Magazine, the Fader, Esquire, and The New York Times.
In 2015, Ryan traveled to the front lines of the Iraq/ISIS conflict and across the Rwandan countryside — filming Jihan and Kagame, two interpersonal documentaries, both currently in post-production.
At home in New York and Los Angeles, Ryan's commercial clients include L'Oreal, Tourneau, Marriott, Sony, Ferrari S.p.A., MAC Cosmetics, Chandon, and Domaines Barons de Rothschild.
Ryan is currently seeking his next feature-length project.
