Cylor Ryles

Founder & Chairman, Executive Director

In 2021, Cylor founded Ends Meet, a music & arts blog that highlighted independent artists with compelling stories. His lifelong love for music, combined with years of studying audio & visual production, have enabled him to transform Ends Meet from a blog into a non-profit organization dedicated to helping aspiring artists.

Since its inception, Cylor has overseen every aspect of organizational operations, including graphic design for web & social media, writing editorials for the blog, volunteer recruitment, organizational planning, bookkeeping, and web design.
