Ray was able to establish himself at a young age in the information technology field.
Upon completing high school, he was recruited to teach computer applications for the provincial government of Ontario.
In 1996, he became a pioneer in the web community by designing and developing websites and database platforms for a number of major brands.
In 1998, Hip-HopZone.com, a Christian music site that he founded, designed and developed – was voted “Website of the Year” for the best hip-hop music site in the world and featured on MTV.
In 2014, Ray completed his first book, Dear Friends, Family, Neighbors, World. The book is a response to the theoretical question, “If you had one last chance to talk with the people that matter most to you, what would you say?” He has made it available free for download.
In 2016, he co-founded Compassion Gallery with Brian Klassen out of his love for photography and philanthropy. The company got off the ground following a successful Kickstarter campaign that raised over $40,000. As part of the project, Ray also authored unOblivious, a 160-page hard cover book featuring his photos and stories from India and Nepal.
Ray is the CEO and CTO of Radiant, focusing his efforts on building culture, creativity, strategic partnerships and innovative technology solutions.
One of Ray’s core focuses is in the area of product development. A couple of highlights include:
Ray is passionate about ministry and seeks to serve Christ wholeheartedly in all areas of life. With his wife Carolyn and their daughter, Adalai, they serve at West London Alliance Church in London, Ontario where they are heavily involved in many different facets of ministry.
Ray also enjoys a wide variety of sports and hobbies including fishing, photography, baseball, hockey, foosball, table tennis, chess and volleyball (although the knees aren’t what they used to be).
