Hello there! My name is Alex Ray and thanks for visiting my page! There's a lot to go through, so hold onto your hats, because we're comin' in hot!
I graduated in 2014 from University of North Carolina Asheville with a B.A. in New Media. What's New Media, you might ask? Well it's these set list of required classes that are outdated by the time I took them (Adobe Flash?). That's why I've always loved being taught newer media techniques from other resources like the internet. This field is ever-changing and ever-growing and I love learning new ways of doing things. I've been told I'm a bit of a polymath.
In 2014, I bicycled across the United States to help support awareness and funding for Colon Cancer in memory of my mother. If you'd like, you can read my journey here.
Since graduating, I moved away from NC to DC where interned until I got the courage to move out west to the center of all entertainment- Los Angeles.
I'm currently living in Santa Monica, which has been a bucket list item for me since I first visited when I was 11 years old. While I do miss afternoon thunderstorms, evergreen trees, and southern BBQ, I've learned to live in the greatest city in the US. I'm now union-eligible for the Local 700 Motion Picture Editors Guild and I patiently await my future union jobs.
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to reach out to me.
