He is a graduate of the University of Notre Dame and Rutgers-The State University of New Jersey.
He writes poems about the world as it is - people's hopes and disappointments -in language that will capture your imagination - weave visual images - entice you to relax in the setting - reminisce -challenge you, at times, to think - and will constantly entertain you.

You will find poems that are companions that will walk with you throughout the day - be shared easily with family and friends - writing you will agree describes your life and the world you know.
"In 1987, during a personal crisis, I began to write. Since then, from time to time, when the mood struck me I would write on the back of napkins, on reports in a business meeting, on index cards, in a little notebook and then at times with less distractions on a computer. During that time less that 6 people have read a portion of my work. I have always wondered whether other people would enjoy and appreciate them - and whether they were any good.
In December 2008, I first started to share my work with the public by posting it on a blog. The Poetry of Ray Brown raybrown.wordpress.com. I continued to post new poems there every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday."
