Email: ryan.oconnor@patch.com Phone: 603-322-3203 Hometown: Merrimack, NH Birthday: Sept. 9, 1982 Bio: After living in Colorado and Florida the first 14 years of my life, I moved to New Hampshire where I attended and graduated from Merrimack High School in 2001. I've since established strong roots in the Granite State, graduating from the University of New Hampshire at Manchester in 2006 with a Bachelor's Degree in Communication Arts. I completed an Internship at Neighborhood News, Inc., and spent the greater part of six years covering community news and sports for a number of towns including Bedford, Goffstown, Bow, Salem, Windham, Hooksett and other local communities. I was hired as the Bedford editor for Patch.com in June, 2011 and love working in this town! Outside of my education and work background, I have an amazing five-year-old son named Collin, and spend much of my free time following and attending Boston sports games. I'm a die-hard Red Sox, Bruins and Patriots fan, and bleed Florida Gators blue and orange in the fall. Religion: I grew up in a Catholic household, though I decided at an early age my religious beliefs didn't strictly adhere to Catholic tradition. I still maintain a strong Christian faith and attend non-denominational Manchester Christian Church.
