Quick Bio: My name is Ryan Urban. I’m a 27 year old EMT and Nursing student from Colorado. I have a background in graphic design and found a particular niche in photo colorization and restorations. This hobby has turned itself into a side job that has allowed me to meet some awesome people and pay for my textbooks at school. So to say I’m happy doing this kind of work is an understatement. I take pride in all my works and I love helping people out, so feel free to contact me for requests, estimates, or simply just to say something nice.
