Phone: 952-449-1749 Hometown: Rubicon, WI Birthday: Sept. 7, 1984 Ryan comes to Patch with several years of newsroom experience, most recently with a group of community newspapers in southwest Ohio. He grew up in Rubicon, Wisconsin, a rural farm town about an hour outside of Milwaukee. A graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison's School of Journalism and Mass Communication in 2006, Ryan spent much of his free time working at the Badger Herald, the largest independent student newspaper in the country. He served as the daily paper's ArtsEtc. Editor, writing countless columns and articles along the way. Ryan moved to Oxford, Ohio in 2007, where he received an education in community journalism while covering multiple beats for the Oxford Press, an award-winning weekly newspaper. He became deeply entrenched in local politics, education and police issues and developed a firm grasp of hyperlocal journalism during more than two years with the paper. He went on to take a position with the Middletown Journal, a daily newspaper with a paid circulation of approximately 20,000. His reporting on a wide range of topics in and around Middletown, Ohio earned him a second place finish as the Ohio Associated Press News Writer of the year for 2009. When he's not busy working, Ryan enjoys seeing movies, listening to music and taking long walks around the Twin Cities with his wife and their dog. He is also a huge sports fan, never missing an opportunity to cheer for the Wisconsin Badgers and Green Bay Packers. At Patch, we promise always to report the facts as objectively as possible and otherwise adhere to the principles of good journalism. However, we also acknowledge that true impartiality is impossible because human beings have beliefs. So in the spirit of simple honesty, our policy is to encourage our editors to reveal their beliefs to the extent they feel comfortable. This disclosure is not a license for us to inject our beliefs into stories or to dictate coverage according to them. In fact, the intent is the opposite: we hope that the knowledge that our beliefs are on the record will cause us to be ever mindful to write, report and edit in a fair, balanced way. And if you ever see evidence that we failed in this mission, please let us know. Politics I would not say my beliefs fall along any party lines, though I do tend to lean toward the liberal end of the spectrum on most issues. Religion I was raised Catholic, though I admittedly do not attend church with any regularity at this point.
