JFH Staff: Ryan Barbee


  • Name: Ryan Barbee
  • Role At JfH: Review Writer
  • Birthday: July 19, 1987
  • Age: 30
  • E-mail: Staff Contact Form
  • Family: Brandie - my best friend and wife. (She's awesome without even trying.) India Jane - our little girl. (She's adorable in every way.)
  • Pets: Eileen and Trudy (aka The Girl and The Booty.)
  • Job Status: Director of Publications for a non-profit, graphic designer, and think-tank operator.
  • Car: Nissan Versa… good on gas.
  • Education: Bachelors: Major in Biblical Studies, Minor in Practical Ministry
  • Hobbies: Reading, writing, traveling, listening to music, studying random information on Wikipedia, and twirling my noodles with a fork and spoon.
  • Pet Peeves: The squeaky sound that Styrofoam makes, the texture/smell of money, sandpaper, and impatient people.
  • Thing you MUST Know: I hate sexuality and anything pertaining to it in movies! It annoys the bejeezus out of me. It's pointless and ridiculous! People need to keep their flippin' clothes on and go worship Jesus! I also am big on the Church being different then the world. If you were to line me up with people who are saved and unsaved would we look/act any different? I hope so. Being a Christian doesn't make a person better but by God's grace it should propel us to live holy! Just sayin'…
  • Guilty Pleasures: Christmas Music… nearly year round. And none of it can be too contemporary - I'm a purist.
  • Favorite TV Shows: Adventure Time, Regular Show, Steven Universe, The Adventures of Gumball… I promise, I'm an adult. Downton Abbey and Parenthood.
  • Favorite Movie:Braveheart, The Fantastic Mr. Fox, Singin' in the Rain, Sleepless in Seattle, Nacho Libre, Disney Cartoon Movies, etc.
  • Favorite Actors: Paul Reubens! Just kidding. Jack Black, George Clooney, Brad Pitt…. Hollywood is in need of Jesus.
  • Favorite Books: Bible: Genesis and Romans, Boy's Life, Swan Song, Dad is Fat, and anything by Roald Dahl.
  • Favorite Cartoon Characters: Brak, Jake the Dog, B-MO, Pops, witchdoctor.com, Carl Fredricksen, Flapjack, and Tree Trunks.
  • Music I Love To Listen To: Arcade Fire, Switchfoot, Bon Iver, Delirious?, U2, Ruth, Eisley, Five Iron Frenzy, David Crowder Band, Hillsong United, Leigh Nash, Phil Wickham, MuteMath, Plankeye, Leeland, Death Cab for Cutie, Louis Prima, Nat King Cole, Sufjan Stevens, Gorrilaz, Sleeping At Last, The Boston Pops Orchestra, The Beach Boys and Christmas Music.
  • Favorite Singer: Jon Foreman, he's got the raspy sound with a smooth undertone. Alison Krauss… quite possibly the greatest singer known to ever exist.
  • Favorite Live Shows: Switchfoot, Tallest Man On Earth, Coldplay
  • Favorite Ninja Attack: 3 easy steps. Step 1: I cut a whole in a box. Step 2: I put myself in the box. Step 3: Somebody opens the box. Then you turn into a tiger and strike!
  • Favorite Food: Anything I can twirl with a fork and spoon or pick up with chopsticks. ALSO… Breakfast food! (Thumbs Up Diner in East Point (Atlanta) is my JAM!)
  • Favorite Fast Food: McDonald's Breakfast! Taco Bell, Rusty Rooster Café, and Popeyes!
  • Favorite Breakfast Cereal: Kroger brand Chocolate Crispy Rice.
  • Favorite Drink: Mountain Dew Livewire
  • Favorite Candy: 5th Avenue. (The Reeses and Butterfinger lovechild.)
  • Most Embarrassing Moment: I have a problem - I have no shame, so I tend not to become embarrassed when I should be. Asking if someone is pregnant or how much money they make. I bring up rather topics without regard to whether or not someone is eating or whispering so loud that the person in front of me clearly knows that they are now the topic of discussion.
  • Little-Known Fact: I'm an outgoing introvert.
