Ryan S. Staséll is an American writer and actor. He was born in Winfield, Illinois in 1991. He grew up in the suburbs of Chicago with his parents, two sisters, and older brother. In the summer of 2006, he began his own production company entitled [Something Untitled] Productions, where he wrote and directed his own short films.
