hi, I’m bowtie!

Okay, my real name is Ryan. I’m a bow tier, designer, and cybersecurity fighter currently with HORNE Cyber. I’m passionate about coffee, gaming, and spreading Jesus joy wherever I can. I’m also a level 2 dad.

This is my high ground.

what I’m playing

Okay, I'm not a "photographer" by any well-defined bar, but I absolutely love snapping shots. I've decided I'm decent enough that others might enjoy using my work for free on their own projects. Enter Unsplash


Most of my IG photos are chronicling daily life, but every once upon a magical, I’ll throw in some stock-ish type photography and post something professional-sounding.
