Ryan Snyder is a Copywriter at Wieden+Kennedy Portland.
Everything he knows about morality and the human condition, he owes to having driven a '94 Ford Taurus.
He played soccer at William & Mary and won an award named after Jon Stewart. His teammates weren't that funny.
For the better part of a decade, Ryan thought he was allergic to peanuts.
Then a doctor put some peanut butter on a glove and stuck it in his mouth.
Ryan is not allergic to peanuts.
