Hi! I'm Ryan Reeh, editor, streamer, video editor, project manager, and event planner. You can find my day-to-day work at AAII as a podcast host and contributor to financial education. I also organize AAII's local chapter program and the annual Investor Conference. Some have even called me "AAII's YouTube guy!" Guilty as charged.

You may have also seen my work at 1pvs2p.com (RIP), a labor-of-love video game podcast and review site I hosted with my younger brother for a number of years. We got to meet and interview some cool guests, I was invited to a Nintendo Switch preview event, and talked about video games once a week.

You're here because I've started a freelance editing shop! Put me to work for you and help me help you make your writing projects concise, professional, stylish, and better. Maybe you need some editing advice or help growing your voice as a writer? I've worked as a professional copy editor and proofreader for various publications and organizations for over a decade and have a wealth of knowledge to tap into.
