1. Tell Us A Little Bit About Yourself. What Does A Typical Day Look Like For You?
My name is Ryan Potter, 19 years old. Born in Oregon, raised in Japan, moved to LA when I was 7. I left a brick and mortar school in 9th grade and started acting in a Nickelodeon show. From that point on I’ve done numerous independent films and was lucky enough to play Hiro in Disney’s Big Hero 6. A typical day consists of checking and sending numerous emails, collaborating with numerous photographers and models in the la area. Seeing what’s new and trending across all social media platforms, meetings with managers, agents, business partners. Aside from business I train in martial arts, take care of my pets, hang out with friends, and camp whenever the opportunity is available.
