Ryan A. Herring


Ryan A. Herring grew up in the isolated but picturesque small town of Homer, Alaska. Having always lived in rural areas, he very naturally developed a deep love for the outdoors. He enjoys hiking, fishing, snowboarding, mountain biking, or to just be out exploring the mountains, rivers, and beaches of the Olympic Peninsula . The rugged beauty of the Pacific Northwest has always been his main source of inspiration as a storyteller, as well as the stranger than fiction tales from the past. With a keen interest in the late 19th century history of the Pacific Northwest in particular, he also has a deep respect and passion for Pacific Northwest Native American cultures. He worked as a carpenter by trade before becoming an independent filmmaker and author. He lives in Port Angeles, Washington, in the heart of the Olympic Peninsula, with his beautiful wife and two children.
