Ray was born and raised in central Illinois, and was drawing as soon as they could hold a pencil. They knew from a young age that they wanted to tell stories, and after years of growing up on manga and webcomics, they pursued an art education at Southern Illinois University of Edwardsville. After graduation, they launched their ongoing webcomic, Dollhouse, in January 2013 and have been publishing two pages a week online since. In November 2015, they also became an affiliate with the creator owned publisher, Hiveworks. Aside from Dollhouse, Ray creates short one-off comics, works as a freelance colorist, and occasionally does freelance illustration work.
Ray currently lives in St. Louis with their cat, Nico. In the evenings, they work at their local comic shop, Star Clipper.
They love the city, and in their free time they love making music playlists, collecting skulls, and going to the local IKEA.
