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.

Trevor Amsberry

Graphic Designer

Trevor enjoys the challenge of bringing creative solutions to any project. Having worked as a graphic designer for multiple industries over the last 13 years, Trevor has seen how good design can benefit any industry. Trevor graduated from Chico State in California with a BS in Marketing and BA in Graphic Design.

In his free time, Trevor enjoys travel and seeing the world, having grown up in a military family and lived in 5 states before he was 18. On the weekends you can usually find him relaxing with his wife Crystal, having a beer and barbequeing with friends, or out hunting for retro toys from his childhood.
