Your passion is your life.
Anything else... is just waiting.

It’s all about taste

It’s funny, you never know what people are going to like. As a photographer, you know what you like and what makes a good photograph technically speaking, but in the end will people like it?  If you’re a professional, will people pay for it? I put some photos up on...

Paddling the Black River

Its been ten long years. The last time I went paddling in any kind of boat was in 2006 when I last lived in Raleigh. Back then, Laura (of whitewater wedding fame) took a few of us out to paddle at midnight in the cooling pool of the nuclear power...

The time machine

Yes, believe it or not, this is a silent film!  This race is at the kart track in Quyon, Quebec, about 1981-1982. The track was opened in 1977 and the Quyon Racing Club used the track for many years for it’s karting championship.  It has been expanded significantly over the...

What I’m doing now

My latest venture is as a Content Strategist for Red Hat, the world’s leading open-source company.  I’m also a PMI-certified project manager with years of successful experience delivering technical, training, and creative projects on time and on budget.

Award-winning photography

Before Red Hat, I was a photographer for a number of years, doing weddings and racing cars (quite a combination… don’t you think?).  Check the portfolio (in the main menu, above) for some photo assignments, or click to see my general photography, or racing car photos, or weddings and portraits. You can also check out my gallery on ViewBug.

Constructing WordPress websites

Another example of open-source software is WordPress, the website-building platform and  nowadays it’s all about the mobile.  Check out the responsive websites I’ve built for people economically and quickly in the web design part of my portfolio.

Video and video editing

Who wouldn’t like to be in on the making of a motion picture?  It’s tons of fun!  I’ve only been part of one major production, but here’s a case study of our film project in the video section of  the portfolio and a few other video samples I’ve toyed with in the video-related posts in the blog.

Racing days!

Car racing has been in my blood since age 14 when my close friend David pulled out his Scalextric racing set.  I love all forms or car racing and even spent six fabulous years of wheel-to-wheel kart racing on racetracks in eastern Canada including several International-level races, and a stint at the Jim Russell Racing School in a Formula Ford.  Nowadays, racing fun is confined to using a camera — check out the images at my racingcarphotos.com site.

Genealogy

I first got interested in family history when I started to near the age that I remembered my grandparents to be when I was young.  As well as researching family history, I also looked into the CADZOW name, which is not overly common.   All the findings are here on cadzowhistory.org.
