Ray Brown

Family and friends I've known since childhood call me Ray Brown. People that know me as the musician, actor, producer call me Rae Valentine. In Europe, I'm often referred to as Ray of L.A.. Why so many names for one person? In my opinion, finding new ways to reinvent one's self is the ultimate in creative expression.

I dedicated all of 2012 in the Amazon Rainforest in the Mato Grosso area of Juina, Brazil. Over 4 square miles of land was purchased for the sole purpose of reforesting. I am thankful for the life-long friendships I've made there. Our work is far from complete and I will continue my efforts, in every affordable opportunity I have. I would encourage everyone to support our cause.
