At Coffeeshop Creative, we are not only passionate about web design and all things custom, but also in sharing stories of our clients, and team members. Today we are proud to feature our newest developer, Michael Uloth. Michael combines a talented artistic/operatic background, with a strong development skill set. We are super excited to be presenting sites featuring the talented coding abilities of Mr. Uloth! Without further ado, lets sit down for a cup of coffee and get to know a bit about our newest team coding member .
Opera singer by night, developer by day- tell us a little about yourself?
I like to keep busy! I started my career as a full-time opera singer, and now split my days between opera, web development, filing tax returns, and teaching English at Humber College. It’s a mixed bag, but I love it! The constant change keeps things interesting, and I enjoy zipping around Toronto and meeting people from so many different walks of life.

How can music learn from tech, and vice versa?
On the other hand, the tech world is fantastic at creating and embracing change. The apps and websites we use (and the languages we use to code them) are constantly updating themselves to better meet the needs of the people using them. In music, the desire to preserve the traditions of the past can sometimes result in music being presented to audiences in exactly same way year after year. The more music can update its presentation to meet the changing needs of modern audiences, the more significant its impact will be.
Hobbies and the like?
What’s a hobby…? Just kidding. Those who know me well won’t be surprised that when I’m not coding, I’m probably listening to half a dozen podcasts while playing a chess game and working on a crossword puzzle. I try to do the New York Times puzzle every day, but life usually has other plans for me! I’m told my fellow humans like to hike or play sports now and then, but I usually opt to keep on tiring out my poor brain.
Most importantly, how do you take your coffee?
I always go for an americano with cream. It’s a completely normal cup of coffee, but the name lets me pretend it’s fancy. Can’t beat it.
