RYAN SCHMIDT

Production Manager

Born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, Ryan is a managing partner, aerialography pilot, and Executive Producer for FlyHi Films.  After working in corporate America for a few years following college, Ryan started, with long time friend Michael, on the FlyHi Films journey. Ryan has two engineering degrees, and thoroughly enjoys the reality of not using those degrees for FlyHi Films.  Ryan's long term goals are: be able to dunk more than a tennis ball and be featured in one of Michael's future films.  He also strongly attributes the many hours of video gaming to his talents as a drone pilot.
