Ryan Rook and Craig Gore, met in Los Angeles in March of 2016 and immediately connected over a shared love for quality design, art, once in a lifetime experiences and living life to the fullest. After working on a few projects together designing floor-plans, interiors, and furniture, Ryan and Craig quickly realized that their individual talents, backgrounds, and views on life complemented each-other so perfectly that rook/RENDER was born. In 2017 the couple moved to Nashville making rook/RENDER their full time focus launching into a home decor line. Craig, now having a little distance from his faster paced life in LA and intense work of high end construction, started to uncover a deep passion and talent for transformational coaching. With Ryan already full-filing her life long dream of having her own design brand, and Craig now with a full time successful coaching practice, the whole of rook/RENDER was handed over to Ryan as Craig is in the background cheering her on!
