Julia Anabo

Julia has a fascination with words and the empowerment that’s created with effective communication. Julia’s career has taken her through the music, fashion, food and healthcare industries. With a decade in the restaurant business, she’s worked just about every role from dishwasher to management. She has a bachelor’s degree in Linguistics from the University of California, Santa Cruz.


Much of her childhood was spent training as a competitive gymnast. This experience along with her professional life has solidified the belief that we achieve exponentially more when we work together as a team, than we do alone.

Quality Design = Higher Engagement = Greater Influence and Trust

Ryan Dineen

Director of Operations and Project Management

Ryan grew up in Orange County, CA before moving to Santa Cruz for college, among the redwoods of UCSC, and never looked back. There he earned his bachelor's in American History, which allowed him to study questions that he finds utterly fascinating: How did we come to be the way that we are? How can we be our best selves moving into the future? He has always been passionate about people—getting to know them, understand them, and love them.


He was the Sales Manager for a wholesale clothing company for almost a decade before moving to Redwood Designs in 2022. Bringing his passion for people and communication to Redwood, Ryan is the bridge between team members, projects, and our clients. 


Ryan has an especial passion for music, having been in various bands over the years, both in school and with friends. Playing music is like nothing else: it is art, yet math; it is a group endeavor, yet is made up of unique individuals parts; it teaches us so much about how to effectively function in life. For fun, he finds that nothing beats a weekend out of town in a quiet spot with a good book. He also enjoys playing chess, watching and discussing movies, grabbing beers with friends, and working on his novel that he will never actually finish.
