I am a software developer based in Toronto, Ontario interested in utilizing web technologies and creating web applications. I have a preference for Node.js for website development, and currently learning Electron in order to build mobile and native applications using HTML, CSS, and Javascript. I'm presently working for Bombardier as a Software Developer using C# .Net MVC and Angular.js to build robust enterprise web applications.

A Javascript-based digital poem which generates a random set of custom-made characters into a paragraph.

From Screen Canadian E-lit :

“Betical” is a born-digital paragraph generator; concept and art by Dani Spinosa, programming by Jon Orsi.

Inspired by Nick Montfort’s “Taroko Gorge,” and other early poetry generators and bots, “Betical” recreates a brand new, randomly generated paragraph each time it is loaded. The images that constitute the letters and form the words are assemblage-letters produced by remixing a scan of the letters typed from Spinosa’s own typewriter, an Olympia SM9.
