About Me + FAQs

101_0755

HI THERE, I’m Ryan. The blogger, chef, photographer, DIY nerd, unrepentant Geek, and general mastermind behind Pancho and The Mule. I am a freelance writer and artist living in Anchorage, chasing a Master’s degree in Composition and Rhetoric.

I also build stuff.

 

 

WHAT IS PANCHO AND THE MULE?

Pancho and The Mule is a blogumentary (blog + documentary) featuring my adventures as a working freelance writer. PATM features my original poems, essays, short stories, projects, and various ramblings and rants.

It also doubles as an online resume.

WHAT DO YOU WRITE?

I write non-fiction essays, columns, articles, and editorials for various blogs, magazines, and websites. I also write fiction in the form of short stories, poems, and books for children, young adults, and regular grown-ups.

WHAT ARE YOUR SPECIALTIES AS A FREELANCE WRITER?

I write op-ed columns and human interest stories with a focus on alternative perspectives and the use of sustainability practices as low-income solutions. Thrifting, repurposing, reusing, reducing, and recycling are not trends; but valuable survival skills. Low-meat, vegan, or vegetarian diets aren’t fads; but economic ways of eating since meat and dairy are expensive.

DO YOU SPECIALIZE IN ANYTHING ELSE?

Yes, I also write science fiction and horror. However, I keep to more cuddly topics when writing for children or young adults.

DO YOU HAVE A YOUTUBE CHANNEL?

Soon! I have purchased a Cannon VIXIA HF R800 1080p HD Video Camcorder. When I am ready to launch my channel I will announce it here on The Mule.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR LIFESTYLE?

Alternative. Eccentric. Me.

ARE YOUR LIFE HACKS, DIY PROJECTS, AND MONEY-SAVING TIPS ONLY FOR OTHER ARTISTS?

No, anyone can use them.

Yes, check out my list of –
