Handyman Ray (1960 - )

Handyman Ray got his start writing about home repair for the wildly popular Web site WOOF.com (now defunct). A dedicated autodidact, he is an expert not only in renovation but also in rock climbing, gun lobbying, and social work. He has since written three do-it-yourself/self-help books (including This Hammer Can Fix Everything, Born to Grout, and The Toolbelt in Gestalt Therapy). He hosts several infomercials, a cable TV series (Handyman Ray's Big Tool Show), and a moderately successful anger-management seminar. He is also developing a dramedy for the WB.
