Ryan Ansloan, a native New Mexican, graduated from the University of New Mexico (UNM) in 2017 with a degree in Political Science. While at UNM, Ryan was engaged in student government and campus activism, leading successful efforts to change campus speech codes and policies. Upon graduation from UNM, Ryan moved to Northern Virginia, where he earned his Juris Doctorate from Antonin Scalia School of Law at George Mason University. While at Scalia Law, Ryan was an Articles Editor for the George Mason Law Review and participated in the Free Speech Clinic.

In his spare time, Ryan enjoys going to sporting events, concerts, and watching far too many films and television shows. He also passes the time by thinking about which Parks & Recreation character he identifies with the most. (It’s typically a back-and-forth between Ron Swanson and Ben Wyatt.)
