Hey there!

My parents named me Michael Ryann but I go with Mike mostly in my life. Happily married to an amazing woman and father to two heaven-sent kids and one Chihuahua.

I’ve spent most of my career working in different startups which got me interested in writing about work culture. Having a family of my own, I also write about experiences in parenting and married life. If there is one person who I’d say inspired me to really write, that person would have to be the late Anthony Bourdain and every now and then I try to write about travel.

Some tidbits about me. I am terrified of flying but love every serving of in-flight apple juice I can get. Also, I’m a self-admitted introvert (INFJ, to be precise) who values time alone—away from the abomination that is the open-office floor plan.

Happy reading and I hope you gain something from reading my most-of-the-time esoteric thoughts.
