With multiple viral videos, travels across the world, a New York Times bestselling book, and over 3.5 million followers on social media, Crusoe has become the unofficial ambassadog for dachshunds everywhere, and for any dog with a passion for whimsy and adventure.
Ryan's background lies in digital marketing, but he's always had a passion for writing, photography, crafting — and dogs, of course. He grew up reading Calvin & Hobbes comics and looking at the William Wegman photo books on his coffee table, both of which have been strong inspirations to what he's doing today. From an early age, Ryan has always jumped from one creative hobby to the next. Crusoe's endeavor started as such, but has now been going on for years and is Ryan's full time career.
