A constant fan of local and international music, Ryan has been listening to Korean indie bands since his first stint as an ESL teacher in Ulsan in 2005. Originally from Idaho, he spent five years in Korea between 2005 and 2011. After returning to the US, he would catch Korean bands during west coast tours or festivals whenever possible while living in Seattle and Orange County, California. He also traveled to SXSW in 2015 and 2016 to catch acts. He recently moved back to Korea in hopes of better supporting the indie scene and its international growth.
