At a young age while growing up in Minnesota, Ryan Nordin found a passion for the outdoors and film. He eventually moved to Montana, to attend MSU film school and founded a luxury real estate marketing company. Filming mansions quickly turned to filming commercials where Ryan found an edge in tabletop directing. Ryan splits his time between Montana and LA and is a co-founder of The Lab, a film collective that has grown to 15 people strong. As a member of the LBGTQ+ community, Ryan is always looking for opportunities to expand and shed light on activism stories, as well as tabletop.
