My name is not important, but you may call me GrayMatter! I'm sure that I'm a lot like you. I've been programming since I was 11 years old and when I started, I was completely self-taught. Self-taught, in this case, meaning that I went on YouTube and watched videos until my eyes were practically closing on their own because it was way past my bed time. Here we are nearly a decade later and I'm graduating out of college with an Associate's Degree in Computer Science and continuing on to get my Bachelor's Degree. I don't even think I will be able to find a career in Computer Science where I live, but I am so passionate about coding. More so, I am passionate about learning how to code. Growing up, I never saw myself as a teacher, but I struggled so much to have an understanding of the things I was typing in these YouTube videos that I just want to give back. I want to teach people to code for free. Why? I have the option to go to Udemy and teach people these lessons for $10 a piece or even offer an asset on the asset store for just as much and not go through the trouble of making, editting, and posting videos, but if you're a kid out there, like I was, and you just want to learn to code and have no money to do it... well you're the underdog I am here for. If I could afford to, I would just teach people to code every single day of my life.

So why start a Patreon? It wasn't something I was actually going to do for the longest time. I had heard about it, but then I felt as if I would never truly need it. Then people started to like my videos and I wanted to just keep making more. Then someone left a comment on a video and told me I should make one. I thought to myself, it would help to have better equipment and software when making these videos, and I could buy some assets to use in these tutorials for examples. So here is the reason why... With small donations every month, I can make the videos 10x better and reach 10x as many people and spend 10x as long making them. Why does the number of people matter? Because if I constantly have suggestions on new content to create, then I constantly have a reason to keep making videos. Help me, help you!
Goals
$0 of $250 per month
When I begin to make $250, I will be able to afford better equipment. This will include: a microphone, since I am currently using the built in microphone of my computer; a webcam, so I can both screen record and allow you to see my gesturing; and other things that will be able to help me in the recording process. Not to mention some assets to actually work with in these game examples.
