Hi, I'm Ryan.
I am an athlete, a nerd, a creative, a game designer, a gamer, a green thumb, a leader, a party starter, a traveler, and a supporter of the oxford comma.
Appreciate the fact that I am living is such amazing abundance. Its incredible that we have access to the luxuries that kings would envy, and it costs us pennies! It might help that I don't have expensive taste haha.
Working to make/keep my life simple, cost effective, and creative. Not trying to die at a desk, you know. Financial independence and freedom from money are big goals of mine. Not that I don't want to work necessarily, but to have my basic needs covered would allow me to be very prudent over the types of work I do and not who pays the most per hour of my life.
Graduated with a Bioengineering BS. Career is taking a different turn, but it sounds good right?
Well traveled and looking to continue. Continuing to fly around the country when I can.
Being positive: I'm generally optimistic about life and don't see a reason to stop. I've loved every phase of my life so far and enjoy growing as a person. I am excited for the next chapters of my life and what new stories/experiences they will bring. I have been doing a lot of self-study on positive psychology.
Making games: Board games, card games, dice games. That kind of thing. Nothing at publishing levels yet, but may great failures!
Admitting I am wrong and adjusting my views when presented with new information. If your goal is to 'win' a debate, you aren't going to have a dialog.

Games: like video games, board games, or card games. I get my competition on!
People: I love meeting new people. I can be a bit of a social butterfly and I love it.
Work/Life & Social/Alone-time balance. Gotta keep it all in check. Nature: Outdoors, hiking, fresh air, animals, ect. I will definitely stop to smell the roses :)
Life, the universe, and everything. Consciousness is weird and extremely interesting. Literally the most interesting thing I have done is experience consciousness, but what is it?
Are looking for a peer in a partner.
Take care of yourself (fitness, diet, mentally).
