About Me:
I am the hiv positive sober gay son of a Texas cop. 20 years ago I was too gay to "make it" in theatre and popular music. At the time, I didn’t fit the product mold.
Now I believe there is space for someone like me. Someone who lives out, out proud and just a little over the top on stage.
Separating masculinity from sexuality has been a life long journey. Expressing myself with glitter and rhinestones often gets me “in trouble.” Wearing costumes that are quite nude gets me “in trouble.” Some people label me as feminine for my taste in costuming and expressing my sexuality that way. I want us to explore what this means together. Let’s build something that let’s us all express ourselves on stage and off without judgement and without shame.
The glorious thing about being part of a counterculture is one gets to be countercultural. Three of my life hero’s and role models are Chuck Renslow, Jim Flint, and Jose Sarria. Two of whom I had the extraordinary privilege to meet and know.

Live Shows: 
My focus is primarily on live shows and touring. Original arrangement cover song with accompanying videos. Eventually I would like to build a big stage show. Dancers, lights, and drones. Getting access to venues can be expensive. Some venues have performers buy seats before being able to have a show, at least in the beginning. Two performance gaols are: as a solo act at pride celebrations around the country and world, as a troupe bringing live shows of male entertainers of all types into gay spaces. Renting out the space first paying for bar staff, dj’s/sound and light operators in the beginning. We can make those things happen together. 
All these things are part of the journey I want us to take together. Let’s make something special and different from what we have come to expect in gay spaces.

Videos:
Music:  Mixing and mastering will be done at Fifty50 Studios for now. Every $65 funded is one song i can be sent to Fifty50 Studios in Dallas.

The NDJ Family:
I look forward to you joining my close-knit community. As my patron, you will have access to a variety of experiences listed below. In addition, this is where I’ll be posting all substantial content from now on. It’s very important to me to have a place where I can nurture the relationships with those of you who actually support my music rather than losing you amidst the noise of social media. As a patron for a couple of other singer/songwriters on Patreon, for me, this has been a better quality and more meaningful exchange. One that I wanted to create for ourselves.

How it works:
I'm really excited to begin creating on a platform that is proven and celebrated by peers that I respect. I believe in the patronage model with all my heart and I'm honored that you would want to support what I do! Please consider supporting three dollars (or more!) per video or song. I will post one to two times a month. As our Patreon community grows, so does our production and quality. If you're concerned about going over your budget, you can set a monthly maximum for 1 video/ month during the signup process. I never want you to go beyond your means and I appreciate every one of you regardless!

Remember, you can stop at anytime. You can put a monthly cap on the amount you want to spend. It’s flexible and customizable. And lastly, as my fan, please do not feel obligated to be a part of Patreon. I’m just glad I get to do what I love and will continue to make music that connects to you in a meaningful way. Always.
