Biography

Ryan C. Stebbins
My name is Ryan Callis Stebbins, and I was born in South Boston, Virginia, on April 15, 1990. I grew up in Skipwith, Virginia — a small town near the North Carolina border. Around the age of seven years old, I began making my own websites and working with graphics design software. Since then, I have made a wide variety of websites for myself, as well as for other individuals and corporations. While I never intended this to become my life-long career, it is a hobby that I enjoy, as well as a good way to make extra money. I attended Virginia Tech from Fall 2009 to Spring 2014, dual majoring in English Literature and Theatre Performance.

Fitness is one my passions that I discovered around the age of twelve. Since then, I have been teaching myself about the subject in my own time. I considered majoring in HNFE (Health, Nutrition, Food, and Exercise), but ultimately I decided that three majors would be too many. Instead, I am studying on my own time to get my NSCA-CPT (Certified Personal Trainer) certification, and after I plan on getting my NSCA-CSCS (Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist) certification, which requires a bachelor’s degree.

A new passion I have discovered is flying. My father and grandfather were both career pilots and flight instructors. I am working toward obtaining my Private Pilot License; I soloed at only 10 hours, and I am well on my way to reaching the required 40 hours. I hope to apply to the Air National Guard or Air Force to serve as an officer and pilot.

This website will show you how my diversified interests — writing, acting, music, computer science, personal training — can be combined and complement one another. By achieving a degree of fluency in a variety of fields, carry-over between them will enhance my abilities.

As Robert A. Heinlein said, “A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, and die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.”
