It was a Muckraking course in middle school that really sparked Ray's interest in journalism, reading book such as "The Jungle," "No Logo" and "Fast Food Nation". After high school, he decided he wanted to get out into the real world and moved to New York to volunteer with City Year AmeriCorp. A year later, he decided the real world was a little too real and retreated into the comfortable liberal arts bubble that is the Evergeen State College. There he got involved with and eventually became the editor of the student-run paper, The Cooper Point Journal. This was an excellent career move, but Ray suspects the time he spent corralling underpaid student journalists was when he started going a little bald, a point his editor Dennis Box likes to make whenever Ray is overly sarcastic in staff meetings. Outside of work, Ray struggles in vain to sleep in while his teacher fiancée wakes up at 5:30 every morning, make messes out of simple meals and consistently ponders the meaning of life, the universe, and everything, which he pretty sure isn't 42 but probably something equally ridiculous and non-sensical, if his experience as a reporter has taught him anything.
