Lance Rynearson is the founder and manager of multiple businesses, an active entrepreneur, and a passionate advocate for mid-century modern architecture and design. He started his DJ business, Rhythm Management, when he was 14, and has since grown it to a couple hundred shows a year throughout Michigan. Always looking to expand his professional influence, Lance has launched several other businesses, including DCTree, a marketing business that serves over 35 companies monthly. All his businesses promote forms of art that are enabled by technology and creative innovation, an intersection that defines Lance’s professional interests. Inspired by the art-making and forward thinking of local world-renowned mid-century modern architect Alden B. Dow, Lance fulfilled his dream of owning an Alden B. Dow home in 2016. His appreciation for authenticity and the story behind objects has led him to gradually restore and redecorate the home with period-true pieces, augmented by hip lighting and subtly-integrated home technology. As the town of Midland, MI began to recognize the rich architectural tradition it boasts, Mid-Century Modern Midland was formed to identify, preserve, and celebrate the city’s artistic and structural heritage. Lance has been involved in moving the organization forward, including creating a database for cataloging all qualifying homes in the city as well as a Mobile App for iOS and Andriod. He and his wife started Duffles of Love Project, a charity benefitting children in foster care. His drive to contribute to worthwhile endeavors has also prompted him to participate in the ongoing updating of technology in the newly-renovated Beaverton Activity Center in his hometown of Beaverton, MI, a warm and caring city he is proud to support. He is a dedicated proponent of adoption, geek culture, and persisting through setbacks. Lance lives with his wife Jamie, daughter Rory, and Jack Russell terrier Louie.
