Ryan's songs have been featured The Line of Best Fit, Bullett Magazine, Baeble Music, Sicky Magazine, & Impose Magazine. "No Battles", a collaboration with Grammy-nominated producer Elon Rutberg (Yeezus), was described as "one of the more expressive, so too expansive indie rock recordings of recent times" that "sways just like a summer night in New York".
Three of Ryan's songs were recently featured in the Emmy-nominated series "Eastsiders". His original musical, Happy, premiered at the Movement Theatre Co., and another musical The Bastard, developed at Playwrights Downtown. He has performed throughout New York City at venues such as Ars Nova, New World Stages, The Knitting Factory, Rockwood Music Hall, and the Guinness Book of World Records' record-breaking event for "most pianos played at one time" with Philip Glass.
Ryan attended New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, and received a Bachelor's degree in Drama. He's directed original work at N.Y.U., Carnegie Mellon, & Wyoming State University which has explored concepts such as modern alienation and the societal dependency on prescription medications.
Ryan launched his career as a Production Assistant at Dodger Theatricals assisting on the Broadway productions of Jesus Christ Superstar, The Farnsworth Invention, and Jersey Boys.
An avid photographer, Ryan's portfolio explores masculine and feminine archetypes and their inverses, as well as social identity and the modern concept of connection.
He is currently based in Los Angeles and also works in New York, his "adopted home" of 12 years. He once catered Hugh Jackman's Christmas party.
