Testimonial

Client Photo

"I engaged Canton for a complete redesign of the website for Unity Woods Yoga. It's hard to know what to praise first. His expert technical knowledge of WordPress and his creative design advice made the site far more attractive and user-friendly than before. His skill in automating a connection to the studio's online registration system will save the staff many hours of work each month. I especially appreciate the value he consistently added above and beyond my expectations with extra tweaks and improvements that I didn't even know to ask for."

The 2014 redesign for www.upaya.org

Upaya Zen Center wanted a dramatic new look for their website that reflected the intensity of their commitment to compassionate engagement. The challenge was to come up with a design that was both bold and welcoming at once.

Behind the scenes, virtually all of the website content was migrated into WordPress so that Upaya’s staff could easily edit any page. A custom MySQL/PHP content management system handles paid membership, fundraising, and a few other areas of the site that have been tailored to exactly match Upaya’s business workflow. Read more.

Personal Obsessions

MyFutureSelf.com is a noncommercial project currently in beta-testing that has been literally 20 years in the making. I’ve only been working on the programming for the past 5 years, but it’s all based on an idea I had in high school: “What if I started writing letters to be read by myself 10 years in the future?” This project touches on a number of my interests: journal keeping, artificial intelligence programming, and using computers to connect not only with our social sphere but with ourselves. Here’s a good newspaper write-up on the project.

Also, I Make Music

The Great River” is a happy melodic techno track.

Invisible Space Journeys” is an melodic ambient techno drum ‘n’ bass album I composed in 1997, but which I re-discovered just recently. It’s now available as a free download for anyone who wants to have a listen.

Latest DJ mix: The “Some Guys Mix” isn’t even electronic… Well, mostly.
