About Like Stories of Old

Hi! My name is Tom and I make video essays that explore the boundary between media analysis and personal development in an empathic, emotionally resonant way.

Why? Because stories have always had a strong impact on me, they affected the way I look at the world, they helped make me a better person, and I wanted to better understand this relation; I wanted to articulate all those intangible feelings that stories invoked in me, how they moved me, and how they made feel more connected to myself and to the world and the people around me. But above all, I felt the need to put this out into the world, to confirm that I am not alone in this, that there are others who share these feelings too, and long to understand them.

The Patreon Project:
By donating to my Patreon, you can get some cool rewards like annotated videos containing additional thoughts, access to a private Discord server, monthly Q&A's, your name in the credits, and if you're really generous, a private book club!
But perhaps most importantly: you allow me to keep making videos. I am so happy and grateful for this to have become my full-time job, not only because I get to follow my passion, but also because your support has proven (at least for me) that there is a real desire for the kind of work that I do, a desire for sincere engagement with stories, life, and meaning, a desire to make a positive impact on others, even if it is in the smallest of ways. 

More about me:

After studying Spatial Planning and Social Geography for my bachelor's degree, I got a master’s degree in Environmental Sociology with a minor in Philosophy. During this time, I was introduced to a lot of theories and philosophies that I would eventually discuss in my videos. Most importantly however, I learned the necessary academic skills that have allowed me to research new topics, critically evaluate information and build arguments, all of which are essential to writing essays. I got interested in making video essays because they give me more creative freedom to include elements beyond the written word, and I really enjoy exploring this boundary between intellectual efforts and artistic expression. 

Much Gratitude!
