Ryden Rizzo - Founder and Principal Designer
Ryden started Allied Maker in his garage after his experiments with Cymatics brought him to learn how to build guitars in Vermont. He grew up in his fathers jewelry design studio which exposed him to ideas of craftsmanship and precious materials at an early age. Ryden attended Parsons School For Design and is a trained woodworker and fabricator. His design approach stems from an obsession with raw materials, and a balance between simplicity and expression.
