Teicher has been with Gagosian since 2008, where he’s had the opportunity to witness the expansive growth of the gallery to what it is today - an international contemporary art gallery that has moved outward from New York City to encompass sixteen gallery spaces worldwide. He has worked with diverse collections - domestic and international - thanks to the artists the gallery has exhibited and the exhibitions that have taken place at the gallery.
Ryan started his bartending career in 2015 working at a high end country club, and it’s there he learned his love for mixology. After graduating college in 2016, Ryan went to work for an Atlanta non-profit, The Real Movement, but also continues as an exclusive bartender for private events around the Atlanta area. From anything from private house parties to weddings, Ryan loves being able to connect with people, while potentially making them his personal favorite drink, the gin and Jam.
