Greg Ipp

Greg is a co-founder of StageBloc, and senior engineer at Topspin Media.  He also runs Unfamiliar Records, an independent Canadian record label which launched the careers of acts like Japandroids (Polyvinyl) and Mac DeMarco (Captured Tracks).

StageBloc is a feature-rich web application which allows users to quickly and easily set up their online presence, including digital sales and social media integrations.  StageBloc also provides a robust API against which users can develop their own applications and themes for the platform.  To this end, the StageBloc team is currently readying the release of Mirrorgram, a highly anticipated photography and visual design application for iOS, developed in tandem with Justin Boreta of The Glitch Mob.

Topspin Media are pioneers in the development of direct-to-consumer marketing and sales.  Through Topspin, Greg has worked on projects with artists such as David Byrne and Brian Eno, Trent Reznor, Eminem, and Beach House.  Since its release, the Topspin platform has become a go-to solution for top-tier recording artists.  With the recent launch of GoDirect, Topspin is now providing a user-friendly, simple way for any artist to create direct-to-consumer marketing widgets.

Prior to working in the start-up world, Greg spent 12 years making video games for Nintendo, Next Level Games, Blackbox, Boss Game, and Electronic Arts.  He enjoys the color black, animated gifs, and photos of cats.
