About Me

IMG_9933_web_transHello my name is Ray. I am a web developer, programmer, electronics engineer, blogger, tinkerer, maker. I am also the CTO of a very successful business in Phoenix, Arizona.

I do my best to stay current and connected socially with other like-minded professionals. The work I do is very diverse and is constantly changing which is why I love it so much.

My primary focus has been in web development for over 10 years. I’m also highly experienced with Linux server administration, web hosting, voip servers and figuring out solutions to new problems very quickly. I use LAMP as the foundation for almost everything I do and have scaled that quite well.

I am learning Java as I write android apps for mobile phones. I am also learning C/C++ and assembler as I program microcontrollers for my electronic hobbies. When I get an idea for a new product, I stay on it till its done.

I work hard and give 110%. This keeps my clients happy and makes me a winner. I also have over 10 years of professional experience in computer repair – which comes in handy all the time.

In my spare time, I enjoy helping others solve programming issues because it forces me to encounter and solve a wide range of problems. This is one way I learn efficiently.

Just like everyone else, I need an outlet to stay sane, so on my time off I do things like play radio controlled cars/trucks/planes, or playing first-person shooter games, or just sitting back watching movies. I own an electric guitar that I sometimes dust off and play. What I prefer the most is to go outside and ride around the desert on a quad while trying not to run my knees into cacti.

I sometimes do metal detecting in the cooler months and blog about it here.
The music I mostly listen to is vocal trance on di.fm. Its the 120 bpm that keeps my mind focused when I am working or studying. I guess the same can be said about heavy metal because that’s relaxing too. I also love classical music. I also really like to cook. I can probably cook better than most women ;)
