"As an actor I’ve always loved being able to bring something as simple as words written on a sheet of paper to life in front of an audience. To this very day I still remember the first play I saw in middle school and how it left me in awe. A theatre group had come into the gymnasium, set up their stage, created a world of lively characters and stories that had the audience completely engrossed in that world, and once the play was over, they were gone leaving the stage just as barren and empty as it was before. And I knew at that moment what I wanted to do with the
rest of my life."
Even though Raymond is a multi-talented creative artist who has written, directed, and produced plays in addition to several other projects over the years, acting was his first love; having been acting since high school days where he was fortunate to perform not only on stages in the United States but across the globe as well. Since that time he has gone on to perform on national television shows, commercials, and several independent films as well.
His first major television break came in 2014 when he was cast in his first national television commercial for the National Association of Realtors. He had another big break in 2015 when he was cast as a lead in a new television show airing on BET Network called Criminals at Work. Raymond continues to act on the stage as well as in front of the camera with several projects currently in the works.
