If you have questions or ideas, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ryan Torma - Before joining Luther Seminary in 2008, Ryan spent more than 10 years working (at times simultaneously) in congregations, multi-media curriculum design, and photography. He is active in the international community studying media, religion and culture and enjoys exploring how media practices and religious practices shape meaning, identity, and social action. Ryan lives in Minneapolis with his wife Kari Ann and dog Arlo.
Kristin Payne - Starting her career in academic book publishing on the East coast, Kristin has since transitioned to digital modes of communication and migrated westward. A stickler for the over-used comma and a champion for the oft-maligned semicolon, she is the keeper of the red pens around the office. She has called St. Paul home since 2003 and is amazed she ever survived without Como Park or Sweeney's Restaurant.
Dan Ruth - Dan is the newest member of the LDT team. Before getting his Masters in Divinity at Luther, he spent a few years in Youth Ministry and dipped his toe in the world of Educational Psychology. He loves thinking about how the seemingly disparate worlds of technology, the Lutheran confessions, and liberating-relational-eschatological theologies fit together. He lives with his spouse, Ellie, in St. Paul and dreams of changing the world. He can often be found at his desk wearing aviator headphones.
