Hi I'm Ryan Miller. I've always been interested in how the world works and how people operate within it. This eagerness and thirst to learn has lead me to follow a unique path. After studying abroad in Germany for six months in 2013 I spent time in Peru as a volunteer English teacher in 2014 and then went back to Germany for almost a year as an English Teaching Assistant through the Fulbright program from 2015 to 2016.
Traveling and living abroad is a huge part of my life and has been instrumental in the development of my worldview. On top of teaching, traveling, and perfecting my German, during my time as a Fulbright grantee I did work as a freelance translator for multiple clients including Adam Opel AG, began learning web design and WordPress--building this site as well as one for a friend's band (available here), and cultivated an interest in finance and digital marketing.
The evolution of my worldview lead me to value human achievement and ingenuity--and the effective use of one's mind above all else. To that end I write extensively about liberty, economics, entrepreneurship, and the morality of productivity and standing on one's own two feet. On top of that I am a current participant at Praxis--an entrepreneurial education and apprenticeship program--and a project manager at Jack Entertainment--a Detroit based gaming company which has been crucial to the resurgence of Detroit.
I'm a language and travel enthusiast, enjoy outdoor activities like hiking and rock climbing, and am always seeking to better understand the world through business, marketing, and writing. I would love to connect with you.
