Meet Team !Mpact Players
Ray and Gabe are two educators who have come together to build an activity-based, online community with the intention to bring educators around the world together.
Ray has worked in youth development and education for over 30 years with different municipalities, non-profits, school districts and charter schools as a youth counselor, principal, dean and CEO. Though his organizations and titles have changed over the years, his core beliefs have not. Ray strongly believes that people at play create a higher quality of life. Whether strategizing with sixth grade campers in Capture the Flag, coaching high school seniors in advisory Olympics, or teaching middle school gang members how to use chopsticks, Ray Trinidad has always felt blessed and thankful for the joy of playing with others and making an impact.
Director of Operations
Gabe has worked in education and expanded learning for 13 years with both the YMCA and K-8 public charter schools as an after-school director, student government advisor, yearbook advisor, athletic director, activities director, student travel coordinator, teacher and summer camp director. In addition to his core job duties, he also organized school assemblies, class competitions, staff bowling tournaments and school-wide Olympics. Gabe Ogilvie has always loved creating, organizing and finding the best way to create memories through games and activities. On top of education, Gabe runs a small video production company where he films, edits and produces educational content.
