y name is Jim Ryan. That’s me (on the right) in 2012.
I’m a reporter for The Oregonian/OregonLive in Portland, by way of an Ohio University education and northern Michigan upbringing. Before moving west, I worked as editor of The Post, Ohio University’s independent student daily, and as an intern for the Columbus Dispatch and WLWT-TV, among other news outlets.
I’m committed to accuracy, thoroughness and fairness in my reporting, and a desire to inform and entertain readers inspires my storytelling.
I count biking, hiking and snowboarding among my hobbies. Hockey was my first love, until writing came along.
You can follow my work on Twitter, friend me on Facebook and contact me via email. I archive my reporting clips on this website, which is also a repository for regular blog posts containing reading recommendations and travel photos.
Thanks for reading, and please don’t hesitate to say hello. I’d love to hear from you.
