Ryan’s journey starts in Hope Mills, North Carolina (just outside of Fayetteville). His architecture career began with the love of building anything and everything from neighborhood skateboard ramps to tree houses and tinkering with anything that could be taken apart. Ryan completed his Masters Degree at the School of Architecture at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte after receiving a B.A. in Sculpture. He worked for 4 years in Concord, NC up-fitting older historical buildings and doing commercial architecture. Ryan came to Kersting Architecture to hone his craft in designing and detailing beautiful local architecture. When not working in the office, Ryan can be found exploring the local beaches, hiking the not so distant mountains, or traveling with his wife and 2 young daughters.
