About Ryan

Hi there. My name is Ryan Derousseau (like the philosopher, just add a -de- in front of it). I’m a freelance writer and journalist who works with publications and organizations to accomplish their content strategy goals.

I’ve spent the last 10 years working for a variety of publications, including, most recently, a year-and-a-half as the Money Magazine senior reporter and social media editor. Over the past six years as a freelancer, I’ve written for a variety of publications, including Fortune, the Washington Post Co., Inc.com, Fast Company, U.S. News & World Report and others. My journalism focus is on leadership, investing, personal finance and careers.

I’ve also run social media strategies for a variety of organizations, including areas of technology, personal finance and politics. If you need help with content development, project management, editing, writing, proofreading or anything else related to the written word, I’m currently accepting new contracts and can be reached through this form.

Ryan Derousseau is a pro. He always meets deadlines and delivers clean, sharp copy. — Paul Lim, Assistant Managing Editor, Money Magazine

I’m also a dedicated writer, working on my first novel The Office of Time Control, as well as various short stories that delve into the way we view our work-life, money and reputations and how this impacts our relationships, personality, values and well-being now and in the future. You can find out more about The Office of Time Control by checking out the website.

My wife, child, the pup above and I live in Huntington, NY. When not writing, I’m constantly looking for interesting places to travel, new hobbies to undertake, a new beer to try, golfing and watching Kansas Jayhawks basketball or University of Texas football (it’s complicated).

His consistency, reliability, and overall work ethic are magnificent.” — Geoff Colvin, author and senior editor-at-large at Fortune Magazine
