I started this journey as a creator in 2012, establishing my brand Fan-i Sports, which stood as a multi-media sports brand based out of Baltimore, Maryland. I wrote articles, opinionated columns, developed hip-hop compilation mixtapes, and everything else I could use to communicate in the steady changing (and crowded) world of sports. From there, I built a small following, which allowed me to turn Fan-i Sports into a legit company in the state of Maryland, leading to my career as a sports journalist. Under the Fan-i Sports umbrella, I covered various events and interviewed some of the top athletes in the world. My proudest moment came in 2015 when I covered the first game in MLB history to feature zero fans in attendance due to the civil unrest in Baltimore. I help inspire a viral moment when I asked former Orioles' manager, Buck Showalter, "What advice would you give to the young black men in the city?".

My timely achievements and integrity led me to my current situation - writing, directing, and producing the highly-anticipated documentary, "The CrimeStopper, detailing the life of hoops legend and viral superstar, Aquille Carr. Having the opportunity to tell a story like this has opened me up to a new world of independent filmmaking, I am excited to explore.

While I created some of my greatest memories over the last nine years, I lived the life of a struggling artist. I was able to generate some income from freelance work, but without the big brands did not value my self-taught education and experience. Like most creators, I went to social media hoping to build a following large enough to finance my creativity, but it left me in a constant rat race for "likes" and attention.

And then I found Patreon.

I view Patreon as a platform to share my beliefs, opinions, and overall storytelling vision to an audience beyond likes and retweets. Instead of chasing outlets to give me an assignment (and little pay) for freelance work, I can directly distribute my content to subscribers, allowing them to tell me what they want me to cover, taking full control of the dialogue. My creativity can flourish in an environment shaped by me and not by social media standards. I don't see myself as an influencer, but as a storyteller, and Patreon is the perfect place for me to tell my stories.

I honor the purity of sports but understand the booming business of sports and entertainment in the digital space. With Patreon, I can build an active community of enthusiast, one Patron at a time.

So what do I want? 
  • To find my true 1,000 fans
  • Time to tell stories on a larger scale such as films and books.
  • Journalistic freedom to cover events, athletes, and stories. 
  • Retain ownership and control of my career and to develop a solid financial foundation.
  • More time to spend with my wife and three-year-old son. 

How will your Patronage help? 
I drive in LA traffic for 40-50 hours a week as a Lyft Driver and would like to cut that time in half to create more premium content for my patron subscribers. 

What to expect? 
Patrons will get a chance to communicate and grow within an engaging community. 
  • Full coverage of trending sporting events. 
  • Interactive content with various athletes, creators, and other artists within the sports world. 
  • Special Offerings every 90-days. 
  • Full exclusiveness to all content created by me. 
  • A dope ass experience! 

What is my ultimate goal?
My ultimate goal is to create a subscription-based Video On Demand service, Fan-I Network, that is primarily supported by my community of Patrons. The network will include original programming produced by myself and other storytellers under the Fan-I Sports umbrella. To achieve this goal, I will need 100,000 monthly Patrons, but it will take patience to reach this finish line. 

Now that you guys know me and what I want to build, share with me and the rest of the community about yours are Let's have fun!
