I founded Frank Ray & Associates in 2011 because the breadth of skills and knowledge I had didn’t lend itself to standard salaried employment.
Also because I was unable to find a permanent role with the variety of work I desired.
I’ve always felt a bit different. Not enough to feel like I didn’t fit in, but enough to understand that other people saw the world a little differently to me. Things became clearer in my mid-40’s when I discovered I am autistic.
An upside to being autistic is seeing whole systems whilst also considering the small details where things often come unstuck. It’s one reason I’ve been able to consistently deliver excellent work.
I really love being a self-employed engineer and my professional goal is to solve more complex and challenging problems.
