True self

Music

I’ve been actively releasing music since 2012 with my first release on Wide Angle Recordings, and I’ve worked with a bunch of other labels since then. To date I’ve officially released one full length album, two orginal EPs, a remix EP, six singles, eight remixes, and one collaboration. I also run a small weirdo label in partnership with Wide Angle Recordings founder Blake Sutherland called Temparc Music.

Writing & Digital Media

When I graduated I briefly embarked on a short-lived music journalism career as a freelancer; I wrote regularly as a young man for Earmilk.com from 2010-2013 and for Canadian monthly music paper Exclaim! from 2011-2014. I also was the lead web writer & editor, video co-producer, & podcast producer for StudioFeed from 2011-2013 before they relocated to LA.

Web Development & Design

I’ve been working as a developer since 2013.  I currently work for my own web development company, Temparc Web, as a full-time contractor. I’m a full-stack developer who works mostly in the LAMP/LEMP world, and with JavaScript as well as is inevitable with the modern web. I enjoy solving problems with code but deeply resent what surveillance capitalism has done to the internet.

This website is built using WordPress on top of Bedrock with a custom theme that uses Vue.js on the front-end. It’s hosted on a small Digital Ocean LAMP droplet. Some specific technologies used on this site include PHP7.1, Composer, Gulp, SCSS, Vue.js, and NPM. There is no external JavaScript or tracking code loaded on this site.
