Ray was born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, on August 14, 1981. His mother and father's identities are unknown. His ethnicity is mixed, and he is an American national (English, German, Scottish).
Ray didn't plan on becoming an actor. He was raised in a middle-class household with a nurse for a mother. Despite not being interested in acting, he is now a well-known YouTuber with a sizable fan base.
He was an average student who graduated from Norman North High School in 1999. But in addition to participating in sports like lacrosse, football, and hockey, he was also quite active outside of the classroom.
He enrolled at Columbia University after high school with the intention of studying law. He chose history as his major because he was unable to major in law.
Ray began his career as a YouTuber in April 2009 when he uploaded his first video to his channel, Ray William Johnson.
He ran a channel called "viral video" before beginning his YouTube channel, which has more than 10.5 million followers and became the first channel to surpass 5 million subscribers in 2011.
After experiencing some issues with the Makers Studio, he opened his own studio, "Equals Three Studios," in November 2012. "The equal Three" series went on to have tremendous success.
He made the announcement in December 2013 that he would be quitting "The Equals Three" and joining his other endeavors, primarily his YouTube channel "Ray William Johnson."
He produced some of the best comedy films and uploaded them on his own YouTube channel, "Ray William Johnson," even after his enormous success with "The Equals Three." On his most recent channel, he now has more than 3 billion views and over 10 million subscribers.
In addition to his job as a YouTuber, he is also an actor who has appeared in films like Who's Driving Doug? and We Love You as well as television shows like Riley Rewind.
The sources of 2022 estimate his net worth to be $10 million. But he hasn't yet made public his compensation.
Ray William Johnson might be available right now. Previously, during the 2011–2012 period, this Vlogger was dating the mixed-race actress Anna Akana.
He had already remarked that Akana was the first woman to make him feel attracted in a long time, and he had gladly welcomed her approach.
Later, a relationship between him and Tessa Violet, a former model and a V blogger who goes by the name mikakitty, was also rumored, though this has not been confirmed by any media.
Tessa was thought to know Ray and be emotionally connected to him, but Johnson's gay roommate "Will," who is also Tessa's cousin, dispelled these suspicions.
