Basics
Email: ryan(at)patch.com Hometown: East Islip, NY Bio: Ryan is a regional editor at Patch, overseeing its Long Island sites. He launched Merrick Patch, the first Patch site in New York, in December 2009. Ryan grew up on Long Island and then fled south to the University of Richmond, where he graduated with majors in journalism and political science. He spent two years as a reporter at a community newspaper in the Richmond suburbs before heading to South Korea, where he taught English for a year and was constantly pointed at by small children yelling, Big nose! After deciding to leave teaching to those with more skills (and patience), Ryan returned home and earned a masters degree from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. His work has appeared in the Richmond Times-Dispatch, The Queens Chronicle, The Korea Times, amNewYork and Newsday.com. In his free time, Ryan likes to watch pointless YouTube videos with his lovely wife, Jill. He also should probably cut down on his Taco Bell intake.
