I am an advocate for the rights of people in the sex trade and for immigrants' rights, and I am ally to the causes of people deeply affected by anti-prostitution policies such as trans communities, the homeless and people living with mental health concerns. I am driven to record audio, take photos and record snippets of video every day of my life. Sometimes I write a few words or a whole story. Very little of what I record day to day sees the light of day immediately but I do create feature length films that challenge perceptions about sex work and society such as NO HUMAN INVOLVED (2016) about the death of Marcia Powell who was killed while incarcerated for 27 months for a prostitution related charge in Arizona. Patron's support will be used to springboard my next film with Monica Jones and to inspire me to release the materials I produce each day more quickly. My goal is to release one new short work per month and I've set up this page so I only receive patron's support if I do release something new. Help me come out of the shadows by being a patron!
Tiers
Pledge $1 (the regular tip)
$1 or more per creation

For your sustaining contribution of only $1 per month, I will give you access to my patron-only feed. You can choose to donate more than $1 per month if you wish in the future but in the meantime, consider this a tip to PJ!

Pledge $10 (delicious coffee tip)
$10 or more per creation

Whenever someone hands me a delicious cup of coffee, I feel motivated to give them $10. Hopefully you will see my work in the same way? For your sustaining contribution of $10 per month, I will give you access to my patron-only feed and send you my Patreon exclusive monthly newsletter with insider tips and tricks from the life of a self-sustaining filmmaker/whore revolutionary/coffee-drinker.

Pledge $25 (tchotkes tip)
$25 or more per creation only 5 left

I collect a lot of small things that I'd love to give to you. For your sustaining contribution of $25 per month, I will give you access to my patron-only feed, send you my Patreon exclusive monthly  newsletter, and send you a tiny item from my adventures in an envelope each month. There can only ever be five of you...

Pledge $50 (director's table tip)
$50 or more per creation

Come sit at my desk--thrilling I know--and I will tell you most of everything I know, share most that I have and let everyone know that we are close friends. For your sustaining contribution of $50 per month, I will give you access to my patron-only feed, send you my Patreon exclusive monthly newsletter, share a final cuts/prints/CD each month that no one else has. With your permission I will list you as a key supporter on published and released works.

Goals
$9 of $800 per creation
When I reach $800 per month from supporters I will be able to focus on my film and creative work (rather than being divided all over the place working on consultancies etc to survive). $800 is the absolute minimum I need to keep my head above water.
