Encyclopedia of Surfing is the largest online resource of surf history in the world. A massive amount of development went into the architecture and build of EncyclopediaOfSurfing.com. This site is a destination for everything you ever wanted to know about the history, people, companies, and culture surrounding the sport of surfing. Structured as an encyclopedia, all of this info is available to user in an A-Z index. The site also showcases all those who have contributed and supported the gathering of this information. Additionally, functionality was added to allow users to “sponsor” individual pages on the site (“this page is brought to you by —-”) based on a tiered fee structure, as a way to cultivate user support and interaction. The site’s vision and content is primarily the result of the passion of Matt Warshaw who has spent the majority of his life as a surf historian. Just look him up! He is an authority on the subject.
Life is in a constant state of creation and so am I. My name is Elijah Shepard but my friends call me 'E'. I am a living machine and restless creative, passionate about design, music, film, and digital media. In short, I love coming up with ideas and am terminally curious. Since art and inspiration is not constrained by a single medium, neither am I. I work and play as a freelance designer, front-end developer, music editor, sound designer, and music composer.
You might know me from the 9 years I spent at the trend-setting digital agency, 2Advanced Studios. You may know me as a composer/producer by the names Audio Catharsis or Living Machine. Most likely, you don’t know me at all and that is okay too.
I am always looking for new things to invest my creative energies in and content to license my music in. Hit me up and let's do something together!
