Quirk is now Mirum

Ryan Von Ess


Account Manager & Not Just a Pretty Face

Ever since Ryan Adrian Von Ess (or as he so aptly points out, “RAVE, how cool?!”) waltzed into the Cape Town QuirkStation in September 2015, the office just hasn’t been the same. Coming from a background of marketing and cocktail shaking, this optimistic Account Manager first fell in love with Quirk when he completed our Red and Yellow Digital Marketing course. Needless to say, from that moment on, he knew this was where he wanted to be.

Bringing his own special brand of song and dance, determination and “Harvey Specter Swag” to the party, it might surprise you to know that this dude previously had a brief stint in pro skateboarding – he was even sponsored by Vans! Rhi Rhi, as his friends call him, also has his own awesome brand of button up shirts, proving once and for all that he’s not just a pretty face.

Ryan loves a good book, watching some Lord of the Rings on a day off, and his wife-to-be, Aimee. If the apocalypse were approaching, you’d only be able to find him in one place: Aimee’s mom’s house in Stanford, sipping on some Gin ‘n Tonic with his family.

Catch him around the office reminiscing about the afro he used to have, talking about that time a Bull Terrier literally bit him in the butt or keeping tabs on his friends and fam with his mad Facebook stalking skills.
