Ryan Todd Garza

I am a former Software Engineering Intern at Apple, currently pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science at Texas Tech University. My experience in computer programming, music, photography, dance, and yoga has allowed me to engage with communities and clients in technical and creative fields, while building a rich portfolio that spans various mediums and industries.

I began my career in music as a multi-instrumentalist, studying various genres and developing a reputation as a highly perceptive musician, songwriter, composer, and audio engineer. My work expanded to include music and audio for film, TV, and video, where I had the privilege of collaborating with independent filmmakers as well as some of the world’s most prestigious brands and companies.

Driven by my interest in sound synthesis, I explored computational creativity and generative systems, ultimately transitioning to software development. I have contributed to software projects for major corporations, startups, and mid-scale businesses. I recently interned at Apple as a Software Engineer on the Audio and Music Applications Team where I contributed features shipped with Apple’s iOS 17.

In addition to my professional pursuits, I am deeply involved in the practice of ashtanga yoga and organized the community Ashtanga Yoga Bhavana. I have recently discovered a passion for ballet and have been actively pursuing training and performance opportunities. In my free time, you can find me immersed in books, taking ballet class, or playing soccer.
