My name is Ryan Hill. I am a growing, independent writer and sometimes producer, professional IT worker by day, American entrepreneur, and among many other things a student of history.
A Texan by birth, I have lived about half my life in the D/FW Metroplex, followed by a few years in the wilderness of Missouri before I landed in Oklahoma City. In 2006, I packed up everything I owned in the Ozarks, stacked in a Tetris-like arrangement of boxes inside my Camaro. I started for the Heartland with an intent to follow where I believed God was leading me at that time.
I started producing content online through what became known as Standard Excellence around 2011, which served for many years as an independent news site focusing on regional and national events and politics. At one time it featured multiple first-source writers and a rich content design.
Now I am incorporating my portfolio into the site, which is still in development. Much like the developer behind it!
