It's Lit With Ray!

As long as I can remember, I've wanted to be an actor. It might've been the thrill of always doing something different and trying something new. I went to school for it, and for a long time I didn't use any of those skills. Over the last few years I've had the opportunity to delve more into what YouTube has to offer, as well as what I'm able to contribute.

One of the hardest things for me to do (as I'm sure with most people) was really narrowing down what it is that my channel was about. I must've gone through about a thousand ideas. Finally, I decided to stick to what I'm passionate about, and not necessarily what I'm good at; after all, it's hard to be good at something when you're always trying new things. My biggest passions in life are traveling, going on adventures, always trying or learning something new and making people laugh. How would I combine it all, though?,

YouTube was the answer that I had been looking for, for a question that I didn't realize that I was asking myself. Once I started to think about creating a channel, I began to obsess over it. I realized that this is truly where my passion lay. I love to create videos and I love to share my ideas with the world.

When you spend all of your time obsessing over something and living and breathing it, it becomes hard to do anything else. This channel means so much to me, and hopefully it does to you too. For most people (myself included), we spend so much time working for someone else, helping them to achieve their goals and to better their situations financially, having very little time to focus on what our interests are.

The balance typically falls unequally to one side. I made it a point to make sure that I have time to do the things that I enjoy doing. I'm glad that you guys can be a part of this, and I really look forward to sharing my passions with you on YouTube.

Thank You,

Ray

Adventures & Experiences

Studio

When I first started out on YouTube, I was recording videos in my room and all I had was a Samsung Galaxy S7, a desk lamp and a really cheap laptop. I even tied a selfie stick down as a tripod. I spent most of my spare money building up my gear, and after I bought my lights and a cheap lavaliere mic I was ready to go!

Current Gear

This is a list of the current gear that I'm currently using for the channel. I've included the Amazon affiliate links below so that you can check that out.

Future Gear

Bigger, better and newer is always better. Below is a list of the gear that I am planning on getting for the channel. A more powerful computer is definitely on the horizon, but because technology is constantly being improved, it doesn't make sense to post that here.

Cast and Crew

This channel wouldn't really exist without these people.

Ray, aka Ray Ray, aka #LitWithRay
