ABOUT

Profile image of Ryn Shane-ArmstrongRyn Shane-Armstrong is a writer, artist, multimedia producer, web designer, and former school teacher currently residing in Tucson, Arizona. His professional endeavors have focused on youth development and film production, much of which has been informed by the growing body of theoretical and practical knowledge known as CCD or Community Cultural Development. Ryn’s interests in the field include creativity studies, language acquisition, technology training, digital storytelling, media literacy, experiential education, social and economic justice, and environmental stewardship.

Originally hailing from the American South, Ryn has since worked, lived, and loved many places in the United States and abroad. He earned a bachelor’s degree from Prescott College (2004) and a masters from the University of Melbourne, Victorian College of the Arts (2009), and he also holds certifications in TESL/TEFL and elementary education (Arizona, K-8). Currently, Ryn is pursuing coursework toward a certification in solar panel installation from Pima County Community College as well as several uncredited MOOC classes related to the development of mobile applications.

Ryn now lives with his wife of seven years, Xu Yan, and their lovely adopted AmStaff/Boston Terrier mix, Sunday (aka, Sundalicious, Sunderful, Boo Boo, or Bitchnug). In his spare time, Ryn enjoys playing tennis, hiking the dry rivers of southern Arizona, bird-watching, reading science fiction, going to the cheap theater, repairing and renovating his house, and trying out new dishes in the kitchen. On occasion, Ryn is able to zip a backhand winner down the alley but mostly he's just happy to get in the game.
