Hi there. My name is Ryan Derousseau (like the philosopher, just add a -de- in front of it). I’m a journalist and writer who also enjoys the occasional inspirational, funny or thought-provoking blog post as well.
For the day job, I’m the Social Media Editor and Senior Reporter at Money Magazine. But my passion is writing. I’m currently 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. I also freelance for other publishing organizations when the opportunities arise.
My fiancé and I live in Long Island City, NY with our 15 pound of fur, Wookie (the dog pictured left). I’m constantly looking for interesting places to travel, new hobbies to undertake and challenges to attempt.
I’ve worked at or for a variety of publications, including Fortune, the Washington Post Co., Inc.com, Fastcompany.com, Yahoo! and others. I’ve also spent six years at publications and PR firms running social media strategies for a variety of organizations, including technology, personal finance and political publishing.
If you want more information about my experience, you can find my LinkedIn page here.
