About Ryan

Director and Director of Photography working in both independent narrative films as well as commercial and advertisement videos. I’ve worked in a variety of fields from ad agencies to production houses and start-ups, as well as running my own video production company Leeway Films LLC.

Seattle, Chicago, Philadelphia and Los Angeles have all been called home throughout my career. I’ve also written scripts, both narrative and commercial — one that I also directed and filmed, “KibbleHub”, was recognized by AdWeek as one of the year’s “Best Brand Hoaxes.”

I’d love to work with you on any project you may have. I’m constantly looking to collaborate and bring any story to life worth telling.
