James W Johnson

As a southwest native, James has traveled the US working for theaters, nonprofit organizations, small business and as a freelance designer, developer, and photographer.
After spending time in New York, Seattle, Colorado and North Carolina, James decided to come back to the southwest with his partner Heather and make Santa Fe his home. He spends his time as an avid outdoorsman and enjoys Santa Fe for the easy access to hiking, camping, and nature. In his spare time, he likes to build motorcycles, eat good food, and play with his dog, Rigby (Rig-dizzle for short).

Ryan Pridgen

Developer

Ryan Pridgen

After moving to Panama at the age of 12, Ryan began creating websites and web applications in his spare time for fun. Throughout his teen years, he spent his time as a programmer and developer in some of the online game development communities, focusing mainly on web development and server-side programming. Building on this experience as a “programmer by hobby”, he began to pursue his passion for developing websites and web applications professionally by collaborating with programmers and designers from all around the world.

Aside from his job as a programmer, Ryan enjoys playing music, hiking, running and playing chess. Here at Mindshare Labs, he looks forward to working in a fast paced environment and growing as a developer by working closely with other talented programmers and web developers.
