Erik Ryken Bio

In online quizzes, Erik consistently registers as a golden retriever. This is demonstrated by his love for lounging in open breezes and rolling on his back with joy in any good patch of grass.

Erik attended OCAD and York universities to study urban design and development and found his best fit in anthropology, focusing on intercultural dialogue and understanding. During this time he worked with student organizations devoted to social and environmental justice.

In his spare time, Erik works on electronic music and sound design projects. He plans to pursue a career in communicative and music therapies.
