He draws inspiration from gothic romance, cosmic horror, southern gothic literature, evil gays from history, and his mom. He absolutely loathes his job, so hire him to write something for you.

Ryan Miller is an Oklahoma native who left the sweeping plains of the midwest for the quaint charm and gothic horror of New England. He has a graduate degree in research psychology from Brown University and loves analyzing the world in 1’s and 0’s. Though a skeptic at heart, he’s fascinated by stories of folklore, religion, and superstition, and how they embed themselves in the deep, dark crevices of the human mind. Ryan helps the team tell such stories through sound production, color, and editing, and is never afraid to take on a new technical challenge. He also really loves cats.
