I'm Ryan. I completed my B.A. Economics and Japanese Linguistics at the University of Washington in 2006. After graduation, I moved to Toyama City, Japan for a couple years to teach English on the Japan Exchange and Teaching Programme, which was a rewarding experience. As of August 2008, I am home again in Redmond, WA–Microsoft and Nintendo of America's back yard–and currently seeking employment in the game industry and international business.

Some commonly-asked questions:

My First RPG? -- Dragon Warrior (NES).
My Favorite Systems? -- Super Nintendo, Sega Saturn, and PlayStation 2.
My Favorite Developers? -- Game Arts, Nihon Falcom, and tri-Ace.
Shadow Hearts or Xenosaga? -- Xenosaga, of course.

I'm also a serious collector of video games. Any comments, questions, or business matters? PM me on the boards.
