Ray was born in Britain to a Welsh mother and English father and was brought up in a small town in Warwickshire, just outside Coventry. Ray loves his sport playing rugby union and football avidly. He left school early to join the Navy and was asked to do his Commando Beret with the Royal Marines.
Ray moved to Australia to be with his girlfriend after a two year relationship online. Ray says she is the best thing that has ever happened to him and is his world. Before moving here Ray was working in recruitment and soon enough landed a similar role in Australia. Ray does miss his mates and family but has no intentions of going home just yet.
