What Is Ryndustries LLC?
Ryndustries is the company founded by Ryn in 2003 that provides the writing, art, performance and other services. Although Ryndustries is currently a one-woman show, Ryn is backed by a support staff of two big dogs, two medium rats and a lizard named Lazlo who doesn’t care if Ryn lived or died as long as he got his twice-weekly mouse. Ryndustries is currently based in Tucson, Arizona, holds an official business license and has an official EIN for payment and tax purposes. While Ryn has worked freelance as a part-time endeavor for more than a decade, she turned to it full-time at the end of 2010.
