  • Ryan is a member of the Los Angeles Film Critics Association.
  • Ryan was an inaugural member of Unifrance's Cannes Critics Lab in 2022, where he wrote about films by directors like Albert Serra, Claire Denis, Cristian Mungiu, and Marie Kreutzer.
  • In 2021, Ryan completed a thesis on the Lifetime Network's original made-for-TV domestic thrillers, specifically as they relate to the history of "movie of the week"-style film production, the woman's film of the studio era, and exploitation cinema of the New Hollywood era.


Since 2017, Ryan has been writing long-form criticism on film, literature, and culture more broadly, with essays, features, profiles, and reviews in publications like the LA Review of Books, the Hollywood Reporter, Little White Lies, Jacobin, and Lit Hub. In addition to working as an Evening News Editor at /News, Ryan freelances criticism at a variety of outlets and writes SEO for a London-based agency. He's particularly interested in the pockets and corners of the film conversation that don't get much play — made-for-TV movies, unreleased films, cinema from underdeveloped nations, studio-era b movies, and the like. Ryan misses when romantic comedies had $25 million budgets.


Ryan has a Bachelor's degree in English Literature from the University of Puget Sound and a Master's degree in Specialized Journalism (The Arts) From USC Annenberg.
