Web development is all about learning new skills and techniques, discerning which are beneficial and identifying where we can put them into practice. I enjoy the process of discovery, adaptation and refinement.

Ray’s professional prowess can’t be confined to just web development—his background also includes art direction, marketing strategy and technical code writing. While day-to-day you can find Ray working on digital display production, Drupal theming, site building and module development, he taps into his prior experience to discern the big picture design and strategic decisions behind some of CHIEF’s most complex web projects. Ray’s understanding of how all the pieces of CHIEF’s practice areas fit together makes him the ultimate champion of cross-team collaboration and allows him to create truly transformative work for our clients.

Ray earned a BFA in Graphic Design from California State University, Fullerton.
