My name is Ray Ingegneri, I am 23 years old and I live in the hot desert of Tucson, Arizona. I currently work for Good News Communications, a group of radio stations in southern Arizona. I mostly work for news/talk station AM-1030 “The Voice” and also AM-940 KGMS “The Good Message Network.” I am part of the operations staff for both stations, meaning I do production work, board opperation and local news, weather and traffic. I board op for the long running Saturday afternoon talk show “Inside Track with Emil Franzi.” I’ve also done board op/production for a whole host of other weekend and weekday shows. I’ve been working in the talk radio insudtry for 5 years and intend on staying in it as long as the medium holds out.

Aside from from my day job and this blog, I am the producer of the podcast “The Jole Gaines Show,” its broadcast live out of a home studio in Tucson every Sunday afternoon at 4pm. I’ve been working on Joel’s show for a little over a year now. I started a blog after I was periodically writing on the blog of another show I was producing. I met Joel Gaines while working on that show. After the show went off the air I lost connection with Joel, even though we only lived down the street from each other. He later heard me doing a traffic report on the radio and gave me a call.

I blogged with Blogger for my first year of blogging in 2006. I stopped for a year after not having the ability to be as creative as I’d liked to have been over at Blogger and I wasn’t really seeing myself as a good writer. I got an itch to write again as all of the stuff that comes with elections started coming about in the middle of 2007, I woule write things on MySpace and blast them out to see if I got any response. That made want to get back on the horse and start a new blog, this time I was not going to make the same mistakes that I had previously made. So at the begenining of 2008 I started this blog and took it slow. I would write everything the day before I would post and I would read everything to make sure that it was exactly what I wanted to say. After a while, as I got better, I didn’t have to do that anymore. And I got really serious about providing more content in the summer of 2009.

The object of my blog is to bring information to people my age. People 18 to 30 really don’t have anyone telling them whats going on in the world but their teachers, The Colbert Report and professors. I chose not to take a route where I have to sit and listen to people that have a lot of knowledge but lack wisdom, in other words I am not a student. I am not saying that I know better than these people, I would just like to relay the life experience that I gain form real people that I interact with, to you, the reader. As of now I plan never to attend college, and feel that it has become something that is thought of as necessary in todays day and age, when in all actuality, it is not.

There is so much you can learn from the people around you, particularly the older ones. If you want to learn about literature you don’t have to go to school, pick up a book. If you want to learn how to write pick up a pen. If you want to learn about life ask someone on the street, talk to your parents or a peer, and feel around until you have a grasp on life.

You’ve heard it said “its not what you know, its who you know” that is true to a degree, but to elaborate on that, it is not just who you know, it is what you learn from who you know. Be them left, right or center, I truly believe that I have something to learn from everyone. There are two types of people in this world, those that teach you what to do and those that teach you what not to do. Take what you can from both and continue down life’s road.
