Our Crew

Ryan Masker


Ryan was born with the intuition to repair and rebuild almost anything. Starting at a young age, Ryan would never be more than 15 feet away from a set of power tools or a pickup truck. His desire to help others also carried him to the path of a volunteer firefighter where he has long family ties and has served since 2007. Ryan has put his heart and soul into Tandem Contracting and the dozens of satisfied clients have helped to expand the company year after year. 
Fun fact, Ryan knows almost every lyric to every song ever created.
