Ryan 'RJO' Stewart

Ryan "R.J.O." Stewart is a young freelance writer, data entry clerk, member of champion trivia team, pop culture gadfly, bar patron, armchair general manager, listmaker and aspiring voiceover actor based out of Boston, Massachusetts. That pretty much sums it up. Ryan adopted his nickname based on his full slate of given initials in homage to Carl "A. C." Newman of the New Pornographers. He's not that big a fan of the band, but The Slow Wonder was top-notch. He's also amazed he's gone this long without inserting a movie quote or other similar reference.
