What the heck is a dopejam?

Excellent question!

It’s a rather meaningless word. Back in the very early days of the web when everyone was squatting on domains I was struggling to find a domain that wasn’t taken.

I had the radio on, and some rap song mentioned “dope jam”, so I punched that in to see if it was free, and low and behold it was. So that’s where that came from.

The pronunciation of my name.

The Q causes a lot of grief, in summary it’s TEREK (as in rhymes with DEREK).

The more authentic pronunciation that’s even hard for me to sound out is TAR-RICK.

Who am I?
