Ryan was interested in drafting as a young boy, following in his Grandfather's footsteps. In high school he started drafting classes with Bob Lombardi, who taught hand-drafting and architectural design, then went on to complete AutoCAD courses at Santa Rosa Junior College.
While at the junior college he worked at Summit Engineering in their Electrical Division and Waste Water Division. Ryan has worked to complete architectural projects for design review including ground-up residences in San Rafael and Fairfax. He has also worked on remodels in unincorporated Marin and retaining wall projects within set-backs that required the application of variances.
Firma Design Group's diverse array of projects, portfolio and pro bono work along with Ryan's yearning to return to beautiful Sonoma county is what grabbed his attention.
Outside of work, Ryan has a passion for mountain biking and cycling while enjoying live music, hiking and hanging with friends and family.
