Ryan Alsum

Ryan Alsum joined our team as one of the only non-artists of the group. However, Ryan came to us with previous painting experience, and was a personal friend of the owner Nick May. Ryan was quickly put into the roll of crew leader, and has a tremendous knack for satisfying the most difficult of customers.


Ryan is a Colorado native and has lived in Colorado for the majority of his life. He studied civil engineering at the University of Colorado. He have been painting houses for 8 years now, starting off painting exteriors in the summer while in college.

His personal affinity for Colorado comes from  the great variety of outdoor activities: hiking, backpacking, bicycling, running, skiing, fishing, conquering fourteeners, and of course its beauty. He enjoys spending time with teenagers through Young Life in Douglas County as a volunteer.

Ryan loves painting because he gets to see his work finish before his eyes and loves getting to know customers on a more personal level.

Although I am not an artist myself, Walls by Design has offered me a great way to work with the some of the best artists in Colorado.”
