Ryan shares his story of leaving corporate America to start his own interior design firm, Smart Studio Designs, even when he felt it was risky and too late. Ryan has lived in a variety of places introducing him to people and cultures that have shaped who he has become today. His story is sprinkled with interesting and important life lessons he has learned along the way, including seeking help for anxiety when needed.

Ryan helps us see the reward is in the journey, that we can look back and find beauty in our individual paths, and that fear is normal, but not to miss out on what the other side of fear has to offer.
