If I have reverted or changed one of your edits and you don't understand why please check the history for the article in question or, if you see a box at the top of your screen indicating you have a talk page message, read your talk page. Either of these tools should provide a pointer to the relevant policy or guideline that explains why an edit was made. Read the referenced policy. If, after reading the Wikivoyage policy, you still have questions, use the article's talk page to discuss your issue. If you disagree with the policy then read the existing discussions on the policy's talk page and suggest changes. Please do not email me directly; wikis are collaborative tools so please raise any issues on-wiki as I will not respond to off-wiki requests.

About me

I'm Ryan, and I travel to cold places when I can afford to do so - I've been fortunate enough to make three visits to Alaska and three trips to the Antarctic. Occasionally I'm found on roadtrips in the United States living in the back of a Subaru, and in moments of temporary insanity I have also led groups of friends to the Galapagos Islands to swim with sharks and whales.

When not traveling my home is in Culver City (near Los Angeles). Other places where I've slept in the same room for extended periods of time have included the Bay Area, Cleveland, Nashua (NH), and to a lesser extent Phoenix, Singapore, and Kuala Lumpur.

Here at Wikivoyage I'm one of the site's soulless functionaries with the ability to perform various bureaucratic tasks - leave a message on my talk page if you need something. I was also very active in the launch of the new Wikivoyage project, and my efforts in that process were rewarded with a lawsuit filed against me; the amazingly great people at WMF helped defend me, and I wrote about the ordeal on my website.

To do






My first contributions to Wikivoyage. Looking at edits made prior to reading every single guideline and policy makes for a humbling reminder of why it is important to be patient with new contributors who don't fully "get" how Wikivoyage works :)
