Dear Friend,

Whatever mode or medium my life dances into, I know that I want to devote myself always, to renewing people’s sense of wonder, starting with my own.

Hello, my name is Ryan Heflin and I am a believer in the magic and miracle that is our bizarre existence, and that renewed wonder and gratitude will save our sleepy souls.  Art plays a powerful part in this renewal, reminding us of the infinite angles and details that are always accessible to us inside of each moment, and in doing so, reminding us of our own hidden, forgotten infinitude and creative potency.

I have been blessed to grow up on the edge of the world in beautiful southern California and have spent many of my days absorbing the timeless wisdom and cleansing energy of the sun, sand and ocean. I graduated from Loyola Marymount University in 2009, cum laude with a B.A. in psychology and minors in theatre and philosophy.  One of the characters currently being played in the story of my life is that of a musician who sings and plays guitar with a laid-back acoustic, beachy, bluesy, soulful, singer-songwriter flow.  Music is a metaphor for life, only revealing its secrets if you come to her honestly, that is, if you are completely present.

 peace n’ love,

Ryan Heflin
