The author riding an elephant to the Amer Fort in Jaipur, India

Hello there! I’m Ryan.

I traveled and lived a lot of different places while growing up and that heavily influenced the things that make me happy. I am happiest when exploring a new place, usually with my camera in hand. I have so far been to 5 out of 7 continents with the goal of reaching all 7. I attended Boise State University to study Wildlife Biology but decided to shift my sights to another career. I hope to continue to use my photography to highlight conservation and other issues facing the world’s wildlife and our environment. I have focused my career goals in the technology field developing websites and software. This career should give me the freedom to work while I travel and pursue my photographic goals and see the world.

I plan to write about photography and conservation, travel and digital nomad lifestyles, and my journey to become a self-taught developer. If there are any questions or requests about topics, please let me know!

I look forward to hearing from you!
