Completionist that I am, I’m in the process of consolidating past works from my portfolio, gists, GitHub repositories, and unreleased projects into their own posts on this site. My disillusionment with Medium over several years led to a bit of a memory hole gap in documentation…

I decided to dip my toe back into twitter again. That may or may not stick around (for now it looks like it kind of sucks). Compared to my own blog, it feels as though I’m projecting my thoughts through a straw whilst living inside a nasty sardine can.

Founding…

Squeak Records: a small, independent record label/media company based in St. Petersburg, Florida. We are currently enjoying a fast, debt-free bootstrapping process. Stay tuned! 🐭

Squeak’s first artists are called Big Huge Giant, who are very close friends of mine and extraordinarily talented musicians. Sometime in February, we’ll have the honor of launching their project as part of the label’s inaugural live show.

Listening…

The first artists I listened to in 2022 were Steely Dan, Death Grips, Source Direct, and Peshay.
