Thank you for stopping by my Patreon page! My journalism covers a wide swath of topics but my bread & butter revolve around surveillance, civil liberties, social justice and corporate corruption. I am currently primarily focused on a weekly radio show found on KRSM 98.9 FM based in Minneapolis covering whistleblowers, police, surveillance and more. The biggest story I can claim as my own was uncovering the FBI aerial surveillance fleet that routinely spies on Americans -- I beat the Associated Press to the punch by publishing over 100 tail-numbers, wrote about the equipment on-board and showed their whereabouts. Since then, aerial surveillance has been my main beat but I've uncovered a great deal more on a lot of different topics. I have a few different day jobs to cover the bills but more support from patrons means more time investigating, interviewing and reporting important news. Your support means the world to me and will enable my reporting to only speed up from here. Thank you!
