About Ryan

We all have our time machines — cameras are mine.


I’m based in Gainesville, Fla., where I work and, to some extent, teach at the College of Journalism and Communications at the University of Florida. I’m also an Interdisciplinary Ecology master’s student in the School of Natural Resources and Environment.

With a focus on pangolins and the illegal wildlife trade, my current project will be exploring ways to both inform and engage communities in Otjiwarongo and Otavi, Namibia, and abroad, by using visual storytelling and the arts as motivators for ecological interests and generating calls to action.
