Hi, my name is Ray Long &
I've been a geek forever.
Since I was a little kid I adored all things geeky and pop culture.
For decades I lived on the geeky side of culture absorbing all the hopeful visions of a sci-fi future to the smashing adventures found in comic books, movies and TV.
I've turned my geek lifestyle and interests into a dream job as a game designer. I began in tabletop game design and have worked on mobile, Facebook and PC games for over a decade working with such companies as Disney, Pixar, Sony and more.
From the domestic middle of nowhere to the international middle of nowhere.
I grew up in the Central Valley of California amongst the farms and suburbs slowly devouring the fiction and science sections of every library I cast my eyes upon.
After 40+ years in California, including a 20 year stint in the
San Francisco Bay Area, I've moved to the beautiful island nation of New Zealand where I work as a game designer and producer for GameFix and other Ruby Play Partners.
Surrounded by all this natural beauty I may even learn to relax between D&D sessions and obsessive game development.
While you were playing tic-tac-toe
I was writing an alternate rule set.
Games, games and more games!
Since I was a lil kid I've not just loved games but made
them since I before I could read.
Could a school project be turned into a game, I was there.
When the console wars heated up, I was there.
When a dungeon master is needed, I was there.
From tabletop to Atari to Commodore to Nintendo and beyond...
I was there...
And still am.
