Stimulate your brain.

Hello there!

My name is Ryne and I would like to challenge and indulge your minds in some of my brain busters. About me – I’m a 23 year old student Majoring in Music Education at California State University, Fresno. I already have a good audience that have tried my puzzles and enjoy them, so I thought “Why not expand my audience?”

These puzzles have been inspired from listening to New York Times Crossword Puzzled Editor Will Shortz on his puzzle segment on NPR aired Sundays. Believe it or not, my puzzle addiction came to me back in October 2006 after getting hooked on crossword puzzles. After becoming pretty good at them I decided I should take a stab at creating my own crosswords. I pulled out my Microsoft Excel spreadsheet and started making some. I found it much challenging than it looks and had way more themes in my notebook that never found its way onto the computer, so I turned them into word play puzzles like Mister Shortz. I’m still making crossword puzzles and I hope one day to get them published somewhere like the school newspaper and also be on our local radio station puzzling listeners, too. I aspire to be a top puzzle artist and creator.

Aside from that, I’m just a regular guy that lives like anyone else – paying rent, breathing air, eating food, and enjoying microbrewed beer.

With that aside, let’s get this show on the road!
