Chris Jones and Lew Hambley
Owners - Operators
Having a passion for art their whole lives, Chris Jones and Lew Hambley both attended Pratt Institute, in Brooklyn, NY, to further their education and expand their knowledge in all things art related. There they met and began a partnership with one another, that unbeknownst to them at the time, would span almost two decades of creative and personal growth together. Since attending Pratt, they have pursued their love of art by working in fields that have given them an understanding of the full scope of artistic design, and all aspects involved. This lead them to working in printing, and eventually to owning SpeedPro Charm City, in lovely Glen Bernie, MD. They are always excited to utilize their passion and skills to help others grow exponentially. In their leisure time they enjoy rocking out in their band, playing baseball, riding waves, traveling, and enjoying all life has to offer, with as many wonderful people as they can.
Finding familiarity and comfort in doing art, Ryan attended Anne Arundel Community College in pursuit of gaining a more formal teaching of graphic arts and applied it to their many branching career paths, whether it be live event and figure photography, videography, graphic design, playing music, or even time as a professional wrestler. Ryan has worked in a variety of fields to help produce graphics with a very specific flare and texture to them. The chain of jobs and hobbies eventually lead Ryan to pursuing printmaking, from part time role to a full-time position as Production Manager at Speedpro, merging their passions with their work at Speedpro Charm City.
