Ryan is a writer, pastor, and trivia nerd from Middletown, DE. He is an ordained elder in the Church of the Nazarene and a graduate of both Eastern Nazarene College and Nazarene Theological Seminary.
He is also Lead Columnist for D3hoops.com, the premier site for coverage of NCAA Division III basketball; occasionally substitute teaches in the Appoquinimink School District; and does freelance writing, teaching, and preaching.
With his wife, Katelynn (a middle school librarian), and daughter, Eva (creative genius), he lives at The Nest - their historic home, just a block off Main Street. The Nest is a center of hospitality and community, hosting Middletown Church of the Nazarene, which Ryan serves as Pastor.
Ryan loves sports and pop culture, reads voraciously, and spends too much time online. He received 754 votes for President of the United States in 2016, has visited the highest point in 32 states (plus DC), and, with two friends, once drove through all 48 contiguous US states in just over four days.
