My name is Jonathan Canady. I’m a visual artist, graphic designer, and musician currently living in Portland, Oregon. I’ve been an avid film freak since the late ‘90s. I started this site as I spend a lot of time hunting for movies that don’t suck in the sea of streaming garbage. Why not share the diamonds I find among the trash, right?

If you have any questions, or notice a movie is no longer streaming, please comment or email me at vergeoflight (at) gmail

Thank you. -Jonathan
