Ray L. Burns, MS CS, MCSE

Ray has a Master of Science in Computer Science and is a Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer on both the Windows 2000 and Windows NT 4.0 platforms. He has over 22 years of computer systems experience with 15 of those years in the consulting arena. Ray brings a unique perspective to computer systems consulting with his cross between software developement and network systems support skills. This provides significant benefits to our clients, as most computer professionals usually work in the programming area or the systems area and not both.

During his 15 years as a consultant, Ray worked on a variety of projects. He used his knowledge of both hardware and software to provide clients with unique solutions to the problems they were having.

After finishing his Masters degree, Ray served in several capacities with Modular Mining Systems. Those included Lead Software Engineer (LSE) and Lead Analyst (LA) on the Global IT Infrastructure. While working as the LSE, Ray designed and developed a system for running robot haul trucks in mines for which he holds two patents. After completion of this project, Ray decided to switch departments and became the LA. While working in this position he planned and rolled out the Windows 2000 platform in a 10 office/ 8 country structure.

Upon leaving Modular, Ray went back into the software developement side of technology working in quality assurance with NewMonics. While there, he tested software for bugs and then helped them to resolve those bugs.

Now Ray has come full circle with all of these experiences and has reentered the consulting arena which he enjoyed for so many years. His goal is to help clients succeed through the use of technology.

Ray received his B.S. in Computer Engineering and his M.S. in Computer Science from the University of Arizona. Ray also taught a computer architecture class at Pima Community College. Ray enjoys spending time with his family, hiking, and singing. Ray has served in both leadership and teaching responsibilities in his church .
