"Hi, my name is Bryan. I started my higher education in 1986. In 1988, I earned an associates of arts degree from Texas State Technical Institute, Waco. I spent more than ten years in the art business doing graphic design and sign work. I enjoyed the art business, but I would often think about some experiences I had while in art school.
