Welcome to my website! I’m your host, Ryan, and I’m here to spread some light into the world or something inspirational like that. I’m a storyteller, whatever the hell that’s supposed to mean.

This space almost hit the graveyard, but I decided that maybe I should let it live, at least for one more year.

Chapter 2Darkness slowly drifted from my cloudy vision as I regained consciousness. My first thought ripped through my brain like a wildfire, why am I still alive? Vaguely familiar numbness ached in my head, reminding me of numerous sleepless nights. Every nerve in my body pulsed as I tried to sit up, the initial shock of pain forcing my body back… Continue reading…


Chapter 3As I paced down the cold passageway towards the office, I kept my face neutral; even though I was dreading every second. The plush carpet was a light grey, filling the wide hallway and softening the light space. Hidden cameras burrowed in the walls, barely visible to even the most trained eye. My feet stopped before his door. Continue reading…
