Hi, I'm Ryan.
I'm an instructional designer at Idaho State University, a Ph.D. student in English and the Teaching of English, and an academic journal editor.
Whether as a community college librarian, a college radio d.j., a rhetoric and composition instructor, or the other positions I've held, I help people understand complex ideas and systems, embrace curiosity, and explore new alternatives.
A better world is possible, and I aim to help make it happen. If you're curious for more details, here's more about me.
Somewhat regular posts.
