About Me

Hi, I’m Ryder.

I’m a world traveler, graphic designer, camp counselor, scientist, immunologist, student, teacher, pilot, and whatever else I decide to be this week.

I was born in Canada, but call quite a few places around the world home. These days, I’m currently hanging out in Toronto, Canada. I’ve been fortunate enough to take advantage of manyย opportunities placed in front of me, and have created some opportunities of my own by living and working abroad.

I’ve got an educational background in science, but am currently working as a software engineer. I’ve also done many travel-related jobs like working on a cruise ship, and teaching English.

I started my blog, RYDAWAY, as a way to remember all my travels, tell my stories, and offer advice to anyone who happens across it.ย Feel free to leave a comment, ask questions, or share anything that I’ve posted here. Best of luck, and happy travels!

Where I’ve Been

While I haven’t been everywhere, I’m working on it! The more I travel, the more I realize there’s so much to see. I’ve got one continent left to do; Antarctica.

So far I’ve visited 40 countries. Click on them below to see some of my posts:
