My name is Raymond, you can call me Ray. I joined the U.S. Navy in June 2013 and continued on an adventure i had began a few years earlier, in 2009, when I joined the world renowned Explorers Club. I achieved the title of Mass Communication Specialist in 2015 and from that, my life changed forever. i have photographed and broadcasted from the Pacific to Atlantic, from the Mediterranean to the Arabian Gulf. All of that experience, hard work and dedication has led me to continuing my education here at the Newhouse School, so that i can successfully lead and innovate in today's communications industry.

I am currently a Member National of The Explorers Club, based out of New York City. The strength of the Club is firmly rooted in the quality of its members. An extensive network of loyal, accomplished proffesionals and innovative programs and opportunities keep the club relevent as we move forward into the future. to learn more about the club visit our website at www.explorers.org.
