Alex Ray

Alex Ray  Alex spent the first part of his career bringing life to stories and strategies for non-profits, entrepreneurs, small businesses, and start ups in the St. Louis area. He then made the leap to the ad agency world. Prior to joining the Brädo roster, Alex served as a Senior Writer and Strategist for 2e Creative. In this role, he helped shape and execute on strategic and creative initiatives for some of the largest names in healthcare, life science, and pharma, including Alcon, Zimmer Biomet, Thermo Fischer Scientific, Johnson & Johnson and more.

A former son of the military with a penchant for wanderlust, Alex settled his collegiate roots in the St. Louis Metro East area. He earned a Bachelor in Music Business (ask him about it some day) and an MBA from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville.

In his time that now mostly belongs to his young children (Aaron and Clara), Alex loves cultivating a refined taste in music, movies, literature and outdoor adventures in these children. And when these children are asleep or with the grandparents, Alex and his wife Melissa love exploring the food scene in St. Louis, dreaming of new home projects, volunteering at their church and planning their next big vacation.
