I build practical systems to actualize creative concepts.

I'm Ryan Todd Garza. I draw from a broad background of interdisciplinary pattern abstraction to develop effective technical and creative solutions for artistic and entrepreneurial ventures.

Software
I design and develop enterprise software solutions and open-source services and libraries. Bit Pas—my creative development organization—is the consolidation and continuation of my freelance work in the tech domain.
Music
I have worked professionally in the music and film industry as an artist, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, producer, and audio engineer in varying degrees of emphasis for most of my life. This framework informs everything I do today.
Generative
Ongoing interest in generative art and creative systems provides me the opportunity for interdisciplinary study and inspires collaborations among experts in artificial intelligence, cognitive science, design, and the arts.
Rhythmanalysis
Exposure and study of cross-cultural traditional rhythmic expression mixed with programming and combinatorics have inspired theoretical rhythmic musings and the practical application thereof.
Design
Though my UI/UX and graphic design work is borne out of necessity, a number of brand and web designs have emerged over the years. I am a design system advocate and help digital product owners develop and integrate them.
Yoga
I am both student and teacher of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and the analysis of texts explicating the philosophy and technique of Yogic systems. In 2021 I established Ashtanga Yoga Bhavana to bolster the local community.
Business
Collaboration across numerous business domains has resulted in a unique perspective and skill set that I've begun to explore professionally as entrepreneurial ventures and consultation on business intelligence integrations.
Writing
Writing is easy; communicating is hard. I enjoy the challenge of communicating a variety of technical and subjective matters which can be found in my blog and on the web as contributions to various publications.
Learning
The most valuable asset I posses is my aptitude for learning. My recent undertakings are to master the Hammond B3, dance in a local ballet production, and transition to and stand up multi-model databases.
