James Ryan at PechaKucha Night Hamptons, Vol. 12
June 12, 2015
Junior Inventor, the mad-scientist alter-ego of James Ryan, was born in Manhattan and was raised in East Hampton with his parents, Paul and Susanne, his two sisters, Elizabeth and Kathryn, and his clinically-insane brother, Paulie. Growing up, he became passionate about music and creative activities, singing Disney songs while disassembling old television sets and their remote controls to see what they were made of on the inside. The young creative took steps further into his crafts when he began working on the electronics and builds of his own instruments, dismantling and reassembling, drilling and plugging, until he found his passions meshing like the gears of a grandfather clock. Stepping into his laboratory in Sunset Park, Brooklyn; one is sure to find a workbench full of his tinkerings as he cooks up a fresh beat to work to.
