Bryan Jaycox

Adjunct Faculty, Department of Game Art & Design


Graduating from USC in 2010 with a M.F.A. in Interactive Media, Bryan’s experience has spanned multiple fields including design for mainstream gaming, serious games, virtual reality, wearable technology, and interactive fine arts. Bryan has been deeply involved in serious games for the past decade and a half, creating games and virtual reality simulations for the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in veterans returning from Iraq, games for physical rehabilitation, and games spanning the educational sector teaching fields ranging from foreign language to neurology. In the mainstream entertainment gaming sector Bryan has worked on AAA titles for LucasArts and at Hollywood director Gore Verbinski’s pioneer game studio Blind Wink games developing original IP for Xbox console systems.

Bryan also works in the physical design and engineering sector with his business The Build Shop. The Build Shop was founded by Bryan in November of 2011 with a desire to take specialized high tech fabrication tools needed for his own craft, and make them available to the public at large at a rate everyday people can afford. This shop follows in the footsteps of the larger Maker Movement that has seen instances of shops, hackerspaces and makerspaces like this one sprouting up across the United States and abroad.
