Ryan Wines is Co-founder and CEO of Marmoset Music -- a boutique music agency, crafting original music for story-driven creative in film, advertising and television. In less than four years, Ryan turned a random idea between two guys in a Portland coffee shop into a rocketing creative agency, shepherding a vibrant conduit between the Pacific Northwest's independent music community and the global creative community. Marmoset's work has been featured in Super Bowls, viral brand campaigns, The Academy Awards, The Grammys and award winning films. In addition to leading the continually evolving strategy and direction of the business, Ryan co-pilots Marmoset’s creative teams and produces original music.
A fiery advocate for artists, Ryan recently gave a TED Talk on nurturing curiosity, fostering a creative culture, and the thrill of loving the work that you do. A 2014 winner of the Portland Business Journal's "40 Under 40" award, Ryan has given talks on the "intersection of music and branding" at the CMJ Music Festival in NYC, SXSW, TechFest NW and MusicFest NW. Ryan serves on the Board of Governors for the Pacific NW Chapter of The Recording Academy (The Grammys), MusicFest NW's 2014 Board of Advisors, he's a member of The Guild of Music Supervisors in Los Angeles, and is active with Portland's EO Chapter (Entrepreneurs Organization -- a global network of entrepreneurs).
An Oregon native, Ryan first realized his passion for music as a College Radio DJ at his alma mater, Southern Oregon University in Ashland. SOU class of 2001, Ryan considers his time at SOU as the most transformational season of his life. While at SOU, he earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, with an emphasis in Business Marketing and a minor in Political Science.
