Welcome.  I’ve been at this Youtube thing since 2015, putting my gaming knowledge and apparently pretty compelling voice to work.  My content ranges from analysis videos about gaming news to speculation to even a few Let’s Plays way back in the day!  Though you may know me best for my signature series Challenger Approaching, which creates detailed Super Smash Bros. character concepts for characters who haven't yet joined the fight, but might in the future!  From aesthetics, to playstyle, to stats, movesets, and everything else, I strive to make each challenger feel true to their identity and authentic to Smash's style!

My time on Youtube has had a big impact on me.  I’ve learned so much, and picked up so many skills along the way in writing, voice work, graphic design, video and sound editing, you name it!  I’ve learned how to network and spread awareness of my content, and it's made me a better communicator and more confident in my abilities.  Who knew I had it in me?

I just wish it was under better circumstances.  Things in real life have been tough for me for a long time--chronic pain and spine problems limit my ability to do conventional work.  At its worst, the pain is intense enough to keep me from doing anything until it dies down, and it makes it very difficult to find a "normal" job where I wouldn't randomly be dead weight for hours on end.  Carving out a niche on Youtube is beyond difficult, but in my current state, it's the best chance I have.

That’s where you come in.  With your support, I can finally stop struggling and fighting against the odds, and start moving forward.  With the support I've received so far, I've made a few strides, and the more that support grows, the further still I'll be able to go.


Why Patreon?

This is the closest thing I have to a career in my current condition, something I can actually do despite the pain.  Working from home gives me better means to manage it, and without having to worry about a traditional job that I'd be unable to do at complete random whenever the pain becomes too intense to manage.

Worried about a paywall?  Rest assured, you don’t have to--all of my videos will still be free to watch on Youtube.  Everything here is just a bonus!


If you’re interested…

Pledges are applied on a monthly basis—they’re processed at the beginning of each month, so plan accordingly.  Depending on how much you can chip in, you’ll have access to various rewards as my way of saying thanks.  They're listed on the right, or down below if you’re on a mobile device.  Keep checking in for more updates--I'm always trying to fix stuff and make it better!


Future Plans

I’ve made it this far by always thinking a step ahead.  Here’s what I could create down the line, with enough support:

Expansions to Challenger Approaching – The focal point of each Smash game is its roster, but there’s much more there than just characters!  Challenger Approaching could expand to also cover aspects such as potential stages, items, assist trophies, and more!  Maybe even some concepts for a story mode?

Challenger Approaching Spinoffs – But with so many Nintendo universes out there, why limit it to Smash Bros.?  How about character concepts for Pokkén Tournament?  Ideas for Zelda dungeons, complete with maps?  Fire Emblem chapters and storylines?  Worlds for 2D or 3D Mario games?

Google Hangouts, Voice Chat, Discord Group – All things I can’t tackle quite yet, due to my living situation, physical limitations, et cetera.  The more things improve, the more I’ll be capable of.

Livesteams? – My current living situation makes streaming impractical, but with enough financial backing, who knows what could get better?  From Smash to RPGs to platformers and everything in between, I'd be able to use my skill and (fingers crossed) sense of humor in real time.  At the very least, you'd be able to laugh every time I screwed up a jump and died, right?

(Check the Goals section for updates. When the time comes, these will start to make their way up there.)


Closing Thoughts

Thanks for making it this far.  I may not be a big name, but I'm confident I can stand on equal ground with them if given the chance to.  Life has backed me into a corner, but with your help, I can still make something of it.

Something Special?

Top Secret...or should I say, Work in Progress.  I want to do something extra special for anyone who'd do this much for my sake, and I want to take time to ensure it's worth the investment.

Goals

At the current time, my situation makes it too difficult and impractical to livestream...but with enough income to set things up, I may yet be able to pull it off.
