Royan is a family man, educator, and, in the words of his own children, “very…weird”. When he isn’t blogging, reading his RSS feeds, or tweeting about education, technology, and parenting, you can find Royan doing wonderfully mundane things with his three children, two dogs, and beloved wife Janet. He is obsessed with learning relationships and experiences that cause growth and shifts in thinking. He is also easily swayed by delicious, unpretentious foods, and perfectly pulled shots of espresso. If you like his Spicy Learning Blog, you may want to send him homemade foods, especially if they are recipes handed down by grandma.
