Ryan Storms is a graphic design artist, fashion entrepreneur, business owner, and event promoter from Los Angeles with deep roots in El Monte, South El Monte, and La Puente.
Ryan came into contact with the Nuvein Foundation through Enrique Diaz, who was then promoting arts and culture in the San Gabriel Valley as well as digital media and design studies at the recently launched Digital Business and Design College (DBD) in El Monte. Ryan was attending South El Monte Chamber mixers at the time and later enrolled at DBD, where he was taught web, media, and graphic design.
As Ryan furthered his studies at DBD and then the ACCD, he became involved in the Nuvein Foundation, and has since been a constant help to the organization reaching out to local students and the business community in the San Gabriel Valley.
Never one to back down from anything, Ryan began his own marketing and clothing line, SLC Collection, which he established in El Monte. Combining his skills acquired in media and web design, unique fashion sense, and an aggressive social media strategy, SLC Collection quickly became a major distributor of urban/alternative fashion.
In addition to enterprise, Ryan has made ample connections across the music/television industry as both an artist/fashionista business owner and event promoter with Klub Events. Ryan has helped organized and promote events in Los Angeles, across California, and Las Vegas.
Ryan’s primary motivation to volunteer with Nuvein is to empower students and youth to dream big and work hard to reach their own goals on their own terms – no holding back.
