Ryan Beauchesne is an online marketing professional for a web development & marketing agency based out of Ottawa, Ontario. His experience and skills in online marketing have played a large role in developing the blog to where it is today. Ryan has taken care of everything involved with the blog from the writing itself, the photography, the web design, the social media engagement, and virtually all else associated with it. Ryan comes from a long background of creative endeavors, having always busied himself with some sort of project. He grew up with the photo books of William Wegman on his coffee table and has read each Calvin & Hobbes comic book at least several times - both of which were his inspirations for the New York Times best-selling Crusoe book. Ryan is the ghost writer behind many corporate websites and blogs. The Crusoe blog itself has won back-to-back awards for 'Best Pet Blog' of 2013 and 2014.
