||From a young age, Ryan has loved all things fantasy; from comic books to hobbits, dragons to demons, and everything in between. Ryan’s passion for this genre has played a major role in his childhood, and has carried with him on his chosen path in becoming a major motion picture director.
Originally from Reno, Nevada, Ryan relocated to Phoenix, Arizona in 2011 to attend Film School at Scottsdale Community College. To date, Ryan has directed over fifteen short films, several commercials, PSAs, music videos, and more, and continues to grow his storytelling portfolio.
Inspired by directors such as Peter Jackson and Guillermo del Toro, Ryan prides himself in his ability to work diligently with his actors and his crew members, creating unforgettable experiences on each of his sets. As in the words of Ryan himself, “I make movies because I love it more than anything in the world.”
Some of Ryan’s accomplishments include:
“Best Director” Award for Helsing
“Best Director” Award for The Woman of the Mountain
Jerome Film Festival “Best Western” for The Woman of the Mountain
Moga Mega Video Challenge - 2nd Place for Rogue
