What is, or rather who is JaemiO?

JaemiO is a food enthusiast who loves to bring food knowledge to all people with hopes of increasing food access and sovereignty. In the past, I have had websites, newspaper columns, and live demonstrations dedicated to microwave cooking, cooking on a budget, and restaurant, brewery, and kitchen gadget reviews. Over the past two years this shifted to a Snapchat interface, bringing recorded content to my followers.

Moving to Snapchat opened doors I never would have imagine for the #FoodEmpowered Project. Suddenly, folks were more engaged with the content and asking tons of questions. It is quite amazing and I couldn’t be happier about it. However, Snapchat isn’t always the most ideal interface for long foodversations (food conversations), nor is the information retrievable after 24 hours. This is terrible for newcomers to the foodversation and seeking #FoodEmpowerment.

I am now moving to a YouTube channel, so the content can be more accessible. My goal is to empower people through their stomachs.

Why I need your help?

Food shouldn’t be exclusive, neither should the information concerning it.

I believe so deeply in this I went to graduate school specifically to learn how I could make food knowledge more accessible, so folks in my hometown could become empowered through it. Little did I know, my Capstone Project concerning this research would become a full-blown thesis that resulted in the creation of a local farmers’ market, FoodiO.org, and the JaemiO YouTube Channel. Thanks to these efforts, food is now empowering people both within my community and others throughout the world! However, these things take up a great amount of my time and personal budget.

That’s where you come in.

It's easy to make food interesting, because, well, it's food. However, it is super hard to really tackle the extremely specific food topics that chefs, nutritionists, and food scientists dedicate their entire lives to without spending a ton of time and resources to research, understand, and present them.

For the past seven years, 90% of my budget has been paid for by me. Needless to say, I do everything I can to keep my costs low, but there are so many things I want to share with my followers. Thus, I need your help. Plus, there's foodie swag!
What to expect?

Style
So far I’ve tried to make my YouTube videos exactly like my Snaps. While this generated interest, it’s just not me, and you all still asked for the Snaps.

So…

Effective immediately, I will adapt my style to better serve viewers and encompass more of the JaemiO you all know and have enjoyed the last 7 years. This means:



  • YouTube videos will primarily be short, sweet recipes for any cook
  • Blog posts will be informative, with an emphasis on natural, foodbased remedies
  • …And…
  • Facebook Live videos will be those foodversations you’ve been asking for
As always, I want all of my work to feel like a conversation between myself and the viewer because that is exactly what they are. So please do not expect perfectly scripted videos, but rather well researched information being presented in the way I would to a friend, in person.
Schedule
Each week you can expect:

At least one unique YouTube video from me in one of the following categories:
SpiceBox

A segment aimed at helping viewers expand their flavor profiles by experiencing new spices and herbs, or using familiar ones as the star of the dish. I will also share a link to foodio.org, where you can discover benefits of one of the ingredients used in the video.

SpiceBox is also a reward for Foodies (patrons). After their first successful pledge, eligible Foodies will receive a box of spices, herbs, and teas that I believe are essential to every kitchen. Check out the right-hand panel to learn more!

Foodie Vlog
I absolutely love food adventures! Whether they're to a local food festival, a farm tour, a microbrewery, or something in-between, I'm game. These periodic videos will feature me at these events tasting new and familiar dishes, while enjoying and embracing the culture. Expect a little foodie advice, as well.

Early, unedited access to these adventures is available to eligible Foodies via Snapchat. Check out the right-hand panel to learn more!

At least one article on FoodiO.org
FoodiO.org is an extension of the JaemiO YouTube Channel. There you can learn more about the herbs, spices, and teas featured in each weeks video, gain motivation and weight loss tips from my own journey to become #FoodEmpowered, and get fooducated via Foodie University.

Foodio.org is an interactive community, so be sure to join the conversation and ask questions. Can't wait to see you there!

And...

At least two FoodieChats a month

These are by far my favorite pieces to do because they educate on the food topics, folks are often too embarrassed to ask or are simply misinformed about. Topics will range from a variety of things like health and nutrition to food systems terminology. FoodieChats will be streamed live via Facebookk so everyone can join the conversation. Official Foodies will be informed of the topics and have the opportunity to ask questions about them in advance. Answers will be given during the stream. Check out the right-hand panel to learn more!

Goals
$0 of $4,000 per month
I absolutely love creating food themed videos. However, the videos take a significant amount of time to produce. Researching, planning, writing, filming, and editing videos all has to be done while I am away from work. Securing this goal would allow me to make JaemiO videos my main focus. Imagine what kind of foodie facts and tips I could share with you then!
