A visionary young man who values the potential of the unknown, Ryan didn't stay put in Florida after he got his bachelor's degree in public relations from the University of South Florida. Instead, he began his next adventure. He headed to the west coast, with no guarantees of where he would live or work. OC and LA immediately felt like home to him, and in his thirst for adventure, he's done a little bit of everything, from working at Quiksilver, Equinox Newport Beach, Hyatt Huntington Beach, ReFresh Talent Agency, T&Co. PR agency, to modeling gigs and volunteering for events like the Sunset Strip Music Festival in West Hollywood. He's now the public relations coordinator for Chapman University and couldn't be happier. He fits right in with the entrepreneurial and creative energy of this nimble university. He swims on his lunch break, surfs HB after work, blogs at rmhines.com, and still stays involved in his other interests, including fashion, style and film.
