About the Author

Ryan Benedetti holds a Master of Fine Arts degree in creative writing from the University of Montana and teaches in the Liberal Arts Department at Salish Kootenai College (SKC) on the Flathead Indian Reservation.

For seven years, Ryan served as Department Head for Information Technology and Computer Engineering at SKC. Prior to that, he worked as editor and information systems specialist for a river, stream, and wetland research program in the School of Forestry at the University of Montana.

Ryan's poems have been published in Cut Bank and Andrei Codrescu's Exquisite Corpse. He loves cartooning, playing blues harmonica, making Flash learning toys, and practicing zazen. He spends his best moments with his wife, daughter, and son in the Mission Mountain Valley of Montana.

Ronan Cranley has worked for the University of Portland as their Senior Web Developer / Systems Manager since moving from Dublin, Ireland to Portland, Oregon in 2006. He earned his Bachelors degree in Computer Science from Dublin Institute of Technology, graduating with Honors in 2003. In his college career, and in both his previous position in ESB International in Dublin, and currently for the University of Portland, Ronan has worked on an array of different projects in PHP, VB.Net, C# and Java. These include, but are not limited to a client side GIS system, a homegrown content management system, a calendaring/scheduling system and a jQuery/Google Maps mash up. When he’s not designing and building front-end web applications, he also serves as the SQL Server DBA for the University. In his spare time, Ronan spends many hours on the soccer field, on the golf course, hanging out with his new wife Caitlin and their English bulldog, Bono, and sampling as much of the Pacific Northwest as he can.
