Look at Lonoke exists to highlight the overlooked people, places, and potential in our unique hometown.  Posts on this site originally appear in the bi-weekly “Look at Lonoke” newspaper column in the Lonoke County Democrat newspaper, written by Ryan Biles

Ryan is a registered architect married to Natalie, a licensed interior designer who writes at Shine. Design Blog.  They are raising three sons in their hometown of Lonoke, Arkansas (pop. 4,287), where they have lived for thirteen years.

In 2016, Ryan was privileged to serve as a Co-Chair of the Kick Start Lonoke independent initiative, which produced a Strategic Action Plan developed by a team of volunteers with tremendous grassroots participation from the citizens of Lonoke.
