I’m Ryan. I’m a real estate broker and investor by day, and I write by night (usually by early morning, actually). I have a degree in Developmental Psychology from the University of Kansas, with concentrated studies in Adult Development and Applied Behavior Science, and this blog is where my academic background manifests.

I enjoy cultivating intellect, especially in attempt to enhance well-being. However, I believe intellectual engagement is ultimately meaningless unless it’s practiced, applied, integrated, and shared.

Above all I’m a grateful husband and father, and more than anything I hope one day my daughter will discover some type of helpful advice, guidance, entertainment, and/or inspiration within this site.

I value and appreciate all the inspiration I gain from others, and my writing here is an attempt to give back — an attempt to help others become healthier, happier, and more versatile beings.
