About

Who Am I?
Hey, everyone! My name is Drew (a.k.a. Genetically Modified Skeptic) and I create videos discussing atheism, criticizing alternative medicine, promoting healthy skepticism, and encouraging positive discourse in the skeptic/atheist community. I'm a full-time activist for the promotion of secularism, critical thinking, science education, and egalitarianism, and am hoping to gain enough momentum on YouTube to launch a career and make a change in the world around me. I come from a family of religious fundamentalists who double as professional purveyors of alternative medicine. Because of this, I feel the need for change in my society every day, and I hope you'll help me create it.

Why Patreon?
Crowdfunding is the surest way to keep my channel alive and running. Back in May of 2018, my patrons came together to support me full-time, and I immediately used the time they effectively bought me to take my channel from 100k views per month to an average of 1 million per month. Accepting funding through Patreon has proven to be the best way for me to keep my mission alive. Without support on Patreon, my channel would be reduced to a hobby. But with the support of a few followers willing to buy me a cup of coffee or so per week, I'll be able to keep producing content for the foreseeable future.

Where Your Money Goes
Producing content is time consuming. Your contributions allow me to spend more time writing, filming, and editing, and less time at work elsewhere. In addition, much of what you give goes directly toward covering expenses like cameras, lighting, editing software, travel for speaking engagements, paying additional editors, etc. I used to say, "With enough support from patrons, I'll be able to consider my video production a job." but you guys have made that goal a reality! Thanks to my patrons' support, I've made several new video series, made time-consuming videos which have gone semi-viral, traveled to Israel to make a documentary, spoken and/or worked at secular conferences, appeared on or hosted several Atheist Community of Austin productions, helped new skeptic youtubers find a voice on their own channels, and even met on-on-one with dozens of viewers to help them work through post-deconversion stress. Without you, I can't do what I do. When you pledge, know that the mission I'm on isn't mine alone - it's ours.

Thank You
To anyone willing to support me and my channel, you have my sincerest thanks. You are absolutely awesome! My wife and puppy thank you for helping us keep food on the table, and for allowing me to work to promote skepticism and secularism. I can't express how much it means to me that you're willing to support my cause. Again, thank you.
Goals
$750 - reached! per
Help me branch out into the professional world. I'll be able to afford branding/design work to be done for my channel. This will make my videos look much more professional. At this level, I'll also begin looking into contributing to various atheist blogs and guesting on podcasts.
