Once the Student; now the Teacher, Raymond is stoked to be teaching improv due to the power of yes and creating together through radical agreement. This prior accountant, consultant, drum major, and exotic pet owner, looks to bring to the forefront the truth in his students lives to fill in their characters and connect with the audience and their scene partners. His love for “If Then..” Improv theory asks his students to explore the fun and specific aspects that round out the world his students create.
He is a current member of the Harold Team team Oh That Baby, Indie team: Stand Up for Whaaa? And Indie Duo supeRRnatural.
A Cuban-American originally from Miami, Florida, Raymond is a graduate of Barry University and Marymount University, holds a MBA and a MHRM, and has an extensive background in human behavior, operations, and organizational development.
