Ryan, from Pennsylvania is an American. Or Canadian. Or Irish citizen. Through a maze of complicated family nationalities, he is entitled to all three passports.
Ryan is an artist by training. But he’s taken on a unique job description that you likely won’t see advertised in the classified section of a newspaper.
Ryan makes Dinosaurs.
I don’t mean that he clones them from DNA preserved in amber a la Jurassic Park, but he builds them from scratch, some of them even life-sized.
These are the mechanically animated life-like models you might see in museums or better theme parks.
Ryan is in Canada negotiating with an institution he will not name top build some models for their dinosaur exhibit.
As you can well-imagine, it is a costly exercise and a highly specialized skill. But it would certainly make for a terrific museum display.
