The beginning.

I cre­at­ed this web­site pri­mar­i­ly to dis­play my pho­to­graph­ic works and to pub­lish var­i­ous articles.

How­ev­er, over the years, it has evolved into a far broad­er pre­sen­ta­tion of my hobbies.

Dur­ing the near­ly 20+ year jour­ney, it has evolved into a col­lec­tion of opin­ion pieces, var­i­ous arti­cles on my many hob­bies and projects, ref­er­ence mate­ri­als, tuto­ri­als, astro­nom­i­cal obser­va­to­ry con­tent, a test­bed for my dif­fer­ent tech­nol­o­gy skill sets used in my career with­in Infor­ma­tion Tech­nol­o­gy and ulti­mate­ly a rep­re­sen­ta­tion of my brand on the web.

The site has been offline for the past three years as I got tired of man­ag­ing it and felt that the con­tent was becom­ing stale, irrel­e­vant and ulti­mate­ly not worth the effort to maintain.

With the Pan­dem­ic and hav­ing ample time to focus on hob­bies and recharge my inter­ests, it felt the right time to bring the site back, albeit with a com­plete­ly dif­fer­ent focus.


In March of 2021, I decid­ed to rework the entire web­site and remove ancient arti­cles that are no longer valid in technology.

I am empha­siz­ing my pho­tog­ra­phy, my culi­nary jour­ney (and the book I am writ­ing on the sub­ject), and the many projects such as my cus­tom cut­ting boards and my retro arcade cabinet.

Addi­tion­al­ly, I am entire­ly revis­it­ing how I dis­play and sell my pho­tog­ra­phy as of Sept 2021.

A new, bold­er strat­e­gy is almost ready.

Photography, Travel, Cooking and Technology

This web­site is pri­mar­i­ly devot­ed to my pho­to­graph­ic arts and my oth­er hobbies.

There is an ever-increas­ing amount of arti­cles and posts focused on com­put­ing and the culi­nary arts.

Look­ing for infor­ma­tion on my career and who I am as a Tech­nol­o­gist ??? read more on the About the IT Pro­fes­sion­al page.

Moving forward

Liv­ing in Cal­gary, Alber­ta, Cana­da, has offered me the oppor­tu­ni­ty to cap­ture a great deal of out­door imagery on film.

Indeed, the prox­im­i­ty to the Rocky Moun­tains has influ­enced the sub­jects that I pre­fer to cover.

While the out­doors has been my pri­ma­ry influ­ence, I have also cov­ered a sig­nif­i­cant num­ber of sports; hock­ey (the great Cana­di­an pas­time), speed skat­ing, snow & water ski­ing, to name a few.

I have also been priv­i­leged to trav­el the world, in turn pre­sent­ing me with the oppor­tu­ni­ty to sharp­en my land­scape, trav­el and street pho­tog­ra­phy.  New imagery was hard­er to obtain when the Pan­dem­ic hit, and trav­el effec­tive­ly came to a grind­ing halt.  That said, I have had a year to work on the vast exist­ing imagery in the vault; stay tuned for new posts through­out the fall and win­ter of 2021–2022.

Stay awhile and explore

I encour­age you to dis­cov­er the var­i­ous ele­ments of the web­site, espe­cial­ly the pho­to gal­leries and the tech­nol­o­gy arti­cles — the cui­sine por­tion of the site is under heavy re-devel­op­ment and is sched­uled to launch in late Nov 2021.

It con­tin­ues to expand with an ever-evolv­ing set of infor­ma­tion (pho­tos, arti­cles, opin­ion pieces, etc.). It acts as a jump­ing-off point to my oth­er web pres­ences — LinkedIn, Insta­gram, etc.

For those inter­est­ed in the imag­ing equip­ment used to pro­duce a pho­to­graph (and, where pos­si­ble, the set­tings of the equip­ment), you can find the infor­ma­tion for this on the detailed Exhi­bi­tion pages while view­ing each image.

I encour­age you to stay awhile, enjoy the site (espe­cial­ly the photographs).
