About Ray the Geek

 

My name is Ray (René) Laureyns. I was born in Hackensack NJ, Raised in Oradell NJ, unwillingly transplanted to Central Jersey (Freehold, NJ to be exact, Bruce Springsteen’s home town) and finally settling in South Jersey near Cherry Hill. A self professed geek, I spend most of my time eating sleeping and drinking (a lot) in my wonderful life in world called Geekdom, the true world of all geeks.  In addition to technology, I love Sports Cars, Movies, Music, Food, Wine and Women!
