Badoux, Raymond

Meet Raymond, or “Ray” if you prefer. Born on September 9, 1980, Ray is a fun guy to have on your team. Friendly, helpful and always ready to cheer up his teammates. Quick with the jokes as he may be, he’s also your most serious (not to mention downright fanatic) player. When he puts his mind to something, he gets the job done. When he enters a race, it’s not for play. He competes. Ferociously. (Due to a lack of talent for running he doesn’t always win, but it’s the thought that counts right?)

This character trait carries over to his professional life. Ray doesn’t accept anything less than sheer perfection. But hey, why hide behind this semi-modest third person prose? Let me just tell you what some of my (past) clients have to say about me:

“Ray has been absolutely brilliant to work with and we really cannot recommend him enough! Ray has been efficient, knowledgeable, patient, helpful, professional, a good communicator and extremely pleasant to deal with.”

“All I can say is WOW. The templates he created for me were awesome. My team loves them and so do the customers. It is so much easier to create on the fly emails now and it all looks great.”

“I can’t thank Ray enough for his help in setting up my subscribe form, templates and RSS feeds. He took the time to understand what I needed and what he delivered is of a very high standard. His understanding of best practice well surpassed my expectations and I’m so happy with the final outcome.”

“It is rare that I write a review without including the limitations of a contractor, but in this case there are no limitations to report. Ray can do it all, and even when he doesn’t know the issue, he is so darn quick in finding out how to fix, change, or make it better.”

Personally, I just can’t get enough of this stuff.

Personal life
I have a wonderful daughter and an amazing son. They’re usually with me 3-4 days a week (I got divorced at the end of 2016) and they’re really starting to turn into these little…people, with their very own typical traits and behaviors – including a strong  will bordering on their father’s stubbornness. 😉 All in all, they just bring a tremendous amount of joy and laughter to my life and I just hope I get to enjoy watching them develop into the very best versions of themselves for decades to come.

Work keeps me in a chair behind a desk, so in order to compensate for a total lack of physical activity during business hours, I exercise – a lot. The kind of workout will depend on the day / week / month / season / year, but it’s usually (a selection of) running, swimming, biking, martial arts (I’m currently into Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Combat Hapkido and Taekwondo), obstacle running, yoga and / or crossfit. I also enjoy slacklining, bouldering, hiking and kayaking. I take exercise very seriously, so I maintain a rather intensive training regime. When it comes to working out, moderation is a concept that I find very hard to implement.

Rest and recuperation you say? Sure! Bring on the Netflix! 😉
