About Dean

Dean survived. Dean survives. Dean finds a way to survive.


My real name is Dean Ryan G. Martin, 24 of age as of August 13, 2008, and you can call me Dean. My family and relatives call me D – R (short for Dean Ryan, not doctor) and all my friends and acquaintances call me Dean.

Either way, DR or Dean, my name sounds dope and it’s okay with me.

Describing myself is not my thing. I don’t choose adjectives to label myself.  All I know is, I am an open-minded SURVIVOR who can outwit, outplay and outlast the odds and ends of life.

I’m also a die-hard fan of Mark Burnett’s Survivor and I write a blog for each episode since season 16.

I have hobbies and some of these hobbies are my addiction. Sad to say, I am addicted to net surfing and blogging These hobbies consume hours and hours of my day and I’m trying to do something about it.

My other hobbies include blogging, reading books, watching movies, watching tennis highlights on YouTube and listening to music (R&B, Hip-Hop, Soul).

Every time I wake up in the morning, it feels refreshing and alive when I listen to Usher Raymond IV, Alicia Keys, John Legend etc. I can’t see my life without listening to their songs. Their songs are food to my soul.

Tennis is my love. I talk, dream and play the sports even in Wii (Wheelchair tennis is expensive. I can’t play it.). For more interesting details about me, kindly click one or two articles below and make some time to read it.
