Thanks for visiting this site showcasing the words, drawings and ideas of Raymond Nakamura, Ph.D., head of Raymond's Brain. His work explores facts and fiction, science and history, words and pictures. He has collaborated with a variety of organizations, including Science World, the Vancouver Aquarium, and the Nikkei National Museum.

Raymond was born and raised in Toronto but has lived most of his working life in Vancouver. Long, long ago, the University of Toronto gave Raymond a degree in Zoology and Japanese Language. Then Kyushu University in Japan granted him a Master's degree for studying the population ecology of stalked barnacles and finally, the U of T let him have a doctorate for his studies on the hydrodynamics of sand dollars. Nowadays, he rents his brain when he is not helping his daughter with homework, playing hockey, or walking the dog. 

He does not usually speak about himself in the third person.
