Ryan Higa Career

In 2008, two of their most popular videos were removed due to copyright infringement. In 2009 his account was suspended and he had to remove more of his videos due to further copyright infringement.

Several of his comedy videos with copyrighted content were also removed in this cleanup. As a result, Ryan began to compose new music of his own.
After high school, Ryan moved to Las Vegas to study at the University of Nevada, where he majored in nuclear medicine but switched to film as a first-year major.
