Ryan Moehring was born in Nampa, Idaho and raised in Omaha, Nebraska. (He’s still not sure what he did to piss off his parents.) Ryan attended Beals Elementary School in Omaha, where, as a result of his unfashionable mullet and husky physique, he was indiscriminately pummeled during recess by white and black kids alike. As a result, to this day he is terrified of playground gravel—won’t go near the stuff.
Ryan currently lives in Colorado with his wife and dogs, where he earned his master’s degree from Denver University’s Sturm College of Law. The Fried Twinkie Manifesto is his first book.
