Traveling with Ryan Fitzgibbon
Writing & Production – Sam Wittwer
Photography – Maggie Shannon
Publisher – Need Supply Co.
From his perfectly coiffed hair to his steely blue eyes – there is something undeniably classic about Ryan Fitzgibbon. He possesses the sort of quintessential good-looks that wouldn’t be out of place in on the screens of a 1950’s movie palace, yet speaking to him in his Williamsburg apartment, it is clear that Ryan is a thoroughly modern man.
Ryan began his career in his home state of Michigan before following the footsteps of many before him to the west coast. He landed at IDEO in Palo Alto, California, where he would spend three years working as a Communications Designer. While the name IDEO may be unfamiliar, their work is surely not – they were instrumental in the development of Apple’s first computer mouse. Eventually Ryan was inspired to pack it up in exchange for a bit of worldly exploration, and made the move to Australia – and it seems like he’s been on the go ever since.
