About Me

My Name is Ryan Swingler I am a journalism student at Drake University. I want to be in the field of writing about sports, music, and events either for a set organization or for a news network. I want to bring multiple different people here and allow to socialize about these topics. My vision is to create a forum for people to have those heated lunch table debates about sports teams on a platform where it can reach across the world. I remember reading myself in the news paper and thinking to myself that is what I want to do https://www.stltoday.com/sports/high-school/article_15ededd9-9a3b-5097-949b-b16d15627acb.html.

That was one of the first times I got connected and interested in sports media. A book from one of sports reporter in St. Louis covers the league my father played in and high school and covered the history of it in book form something I have not seen before. That is something I strive to bring something not see n before https://www.amazon.com/PHL-STL-Earl-Austin-Jr/dp/0981991300.

All forms of art intriguing me and one of my favorites is we wear the mask by Paul Lawrence Dunbar , due to how it resonates with me and how I must understand the world https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poems/44203/we-wear-the-mask.

Interviewing is my passion, I love to dive deeper into someone else mind and understand them. Each person unique and interviews show that. I want each person I interview to feel important and needed in the story.
