Born and raised near Chicago, Illinois, Bryan later moved to Las Vegas, Nevada and enrolled in UNLV’s college of business. It took a degree in Accounting, three years of daydreaming in cubicles, and a collection of stories piling up on his hard drive to learn that he is a writer and not an accountant. His writing style is most-influenced by screenplays, of which he is a voracious reader. Chandler, Carver, Hemingway, Bukowski, and Murakami are also heavy influences. He currently resides with his family in Las Vegas, Nevada.
