A third-generation Hongkonger with roots in Shanghai, London and Newfoundland, Ryan Kilpatrick has always been drawn to the ships and sea routes that bind together both his own family’s story and that of his hometown. After studying Chinese history he made the move from academia to journalism, writing for the Wall Street Journal, South China Morning Post, TIME, Fortune, and others. His favourite stories fuse his passions for heritage, conservation and the ocean, and remind readers how much Hong Kong owes to its rich maritime inheritance.
