WRITER. AUTHOR. BLOGGER. JOURNALIST.

Hi, I'm Ryan, a passionate writer, blogger, author and journalist. Welcome to my corner of the Internet.

My journalism has been published by the Guardian, BBC Sport, Liverpool Echo, These Football Times and Montreal Gazette, among others, reaching a social media audience of 15 million. 

I have been featured by MLB.com, FanSided and SABR, and profiled by the New York Post and Wirral Globe, adding tremendous diversity to my journalism portfolio.

In August 2019, I published my first book, a narrative history of Tranmere Rovers that is available now in paperback and Kindle formats through Amazon.
