My name is Bryan, and I was born in 1976 in Wichita, KS, where I lived until two years ago. I am currently in Denver, CO studying visual effects at the Art Institute of Colorado, where I am the president and founder of a student chapter of SIGGRAPH, and as of today I am an intern with the Open Media Foundation. I also serve as web administrator for the Christian Gamers' Guild and public relations officer for Fans for Christ.
I have been married for almost four years, and my wife is also an Art Institute student studying Graphic Design. Upon graduation in December, we plan to move to Los Angeles so I can find a job in film or television. No kids yet, nor plans for any; we've got over $100k in student loans to pay off before that stage of our lives. I have a sister, four years younger, and a brother, 18 years younger than I.
I've been going by the handle Midgardsormr since 1992, I think, when I first signed on to a local Bulletin Board Service (BBS). The name is the Saxonized form of the Midgard Serpent of Norse mythology, by the way; I get that question a lot.
Other than cartography and roleplaying, my hobbies include board games, video games, television, mathematics, reading, music (percussionist primarily), philosophy, theology, video, theatre, writing, motion graphics, sound reinforcement, etc. Yeah, I'm easily distracted.
My website is at http://www.bryanray.name , where I also maintain a production blog. And of course, I'm also on Facebook and LinkedIn.
