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.
