I'm an art critic, artist, designer and writer specializing in digital arts and play. I also edited a book of short stories called Ghosts in the Machine with game critic Brendan Keogh. I sometimes write for Rhizome, and I've also written for Vice, Kill Screen, Bit Creature, Billboard and more. 

I write about the games no one writes about. My site, Sufficiently Human, is a criticism project that aims to provide a platform for weird, niche, oddball games that don't generally earn a mention on big gaming websites. These works are often small, free or cheap, made by individuals or small teams as personal projects or artistic experiments. I believe there's value in curating these kinds of works that exist on the fringe, because they show us what the medium can do and what people can do with the tools without corporate direction. I hope you will enjoy reading about them. 

I mainly write reviews but sometimes I post profiles, interviews, and critical essays. Fair warning: I'm currently working through a backlog that accrued due to certain interruptions in my life, but I have every intention of making up for lost time with these posts while I also work my way through a rather ambitious freelance project. 

I also run a Twitch stream called The Freak Museum, which is a project to give these games a bigger platform in a more fun and accessible way. This and my writing will always be publicly accessible. 

I also enjoy drawing and sometimes making my own little games. Patrons who pay a little more can get a custom drawing or small game, and I will honour most any request as long as it isn't for something bigoted. I especially enjoy grotesque and surreal things, so keep that in mind. 

For now, here's a drawing of mine that I felt was appropriate enough to post here, as it contains no depictions of melted flesh, goop, bodily fluids, nudity and/or elite public figures either deformed or in compromising physical positions. 


Tiers
Level 1 Art Freak.
$1 or more per piece


I will produce writing for my site Sufficiently Human (new posts for this will be reduced while I fill out my backlog) and stream The Freak Museum every Sunday night. 

Level 2 Art Freak.
$10 or more per piece
I will do everything in the previous tier, plus I will draw you whatever you request (within reason. I will draw most gross or weird stuff as long as it isn't also bigoted.) 
Level 3 Art Freak.
$25 or more per piece
I will do everything above plus I will send you your drawing as a print (just remember to provide your address!) 
Level 4 Art Freak.
$50 or more per piece

I will do everything above, plus I will make a game for which you will receive a credit.  

Goals
$335 of $400 per piece
Makes it worth it and allows me to focus on other freelance projects.
