I'm Ryan

Welcome! Per the web address, you'll know that this is Ryan Erickson's site, that's me. First things first: the postings on this site are my own and don’t represent U.S. Coast Guard positions or opinions.*

This is a personal site aimed at nothing in particular. Sometimes I go on story writing binges and others I babble on about tech or what new computer "thing" I'm learning or interested in (case in point, this site is running on a Raspberry Pi 3 in my living room!). Overall, I use the site to keep track of what's interesting me at the moment.

Who's Ryan?

I am, by most accounts, a regular married guy with five kids. My adult life has been spent serving the government by way of the US Army and US Coast Guard. I dabble in the lanes of tech (Linux) as a hobby and as a means of keeping my brain from going to mush.

Get in touch...

I love to chat. If you have the need to get in touch with me, please, feel free to do so. As I've noted before, I'm kind of into privacy and though I would never force it onto any of you, I'm here to keep it really easy for you and I to communicate, securely, or otherwise.
