Who is Ray?

Dr. Raymond Christian is a retired US Army paratrooper who grew up on the poverty-ridden streets of Richmond, VA. The son of illiterate parents, his love for the written word sparked his dreams of a different life and led to many adventures, including seeming impossible educational achievements and life as an amateur farmer and professional family-man.

Why Ray?

Ray uses his unique combination of education and world experience to teach, inspire and entertain.  From professional development workshops and fundraisers to keynote addresses, he uses the spoken word to connect to audiences and leave them encouraged and inspired to take on any challenge they might face.
