About Ryan
Scottish nurse-turned-journalist. I obtained my Master's degree in multimedia journalism; which means I'm handy with a mic, a camera, a camcorder, as well as a pen, and I carry enough equipment to do all at the same time. I can assist you with your journalistic needs; recently returned from Uganda and looking for work in Edinburgh and Scotland.

I've worked for Scotland's top political magazine, as well as a producer on Scotland's main politics and current affairs show "Scotland Tonight".

In my spare time I work on my documentary and reporting project looking into NGO and private actors in the international development world called "A Hope in Health".
