Ray Horsley

Ray Horsley is originally from Chicago. He comes to Cuenca after twenty-five years in St. Pete Florida with his wife, Celeste, with whom they raised two children. As a software developer, Ray has devoted the majority of his career to educational programs while supplementing this with a dedication to music working as both an organist; church work as well as the Tampa Bay Lightning, and as a jazz pianist, most notably for the Casinos de Cataluña where an interest in Spanish laid the foundation for the decision to retire in Cuenca. Ray has written several books about the periods of time he and Celeste have enjoyed residing abroad in Argentina, Chile, Ecuador, Ireland, Mexico, and Spain.
