Hi. I'm Ryan. My passion is telling visual stories with video being my primary medium. I've been making films for over a decade, and have been a vegan for two and a half years now. Since I transitioned I've been pursuing a career as a social entrepreneur whereby the goal of my work is to create a positive impact on the world, which has led to being more focused on vegan food.
Vegan Motorcycle Diaries was born out of my desire to explore, to meet new people, and to tell stories that inspire others to make conscious choices about what they put into their bodies. I'm not entirely sure where this journey leads, yet now that I'm on it I feel like I'm doing exactly what I should be.
My work has been featured in the New York Times, BBC, TIME, Huffington Post, BuzzFeed, The Guardian, and 100+ other online and print publications. I’ve helped to raise over $350k through several Kickstarter campaigns, and the digital outreach campaigns I’ve managed have reached millions of people all over the world.
