Ryan Hoffman is a staff writer/film critic for the Arbiter newspaper at Boise State University. He loves all things music and film, and he is majoring in Communications with an Emphasis in Media Production at BSU. His dream is to be a movie director & musician in a band one day. Ryan wears a Powerpuff Girls T-shirt sometimes because he just doesn't care, and you shouldn't either.
