This is Problem Machine!

I create many things.

Some of these are small: I write short blog posts, mostly 500-1000 words, on a weekly basis. These mini-essays explore topics of game design and the ways we create and experience different forms of art.

Some of these are less small. I've created a few electronic music albums, have begun creating monthly projects and, though it is currently on hiatus, soon plan on returning to my larger game project EverEnding.

I also stream games! Check out my twitch channel to see me play through and share my thoughts on the experience in real-time. Right now I'm streaming 5 days a week for a couple of hours starting in the early afternoon, but both the timing and the content of these streams is subject to change.

I find all of these pursuits are very artistically and intellectually rewarding, and I like to believe that other people will find them useful and interesting as well. However, the work produced is not inherently financially rewarding – and that's where you come in! If you'd like to help me continue to do the work I'm doing, please consider supporting me with a small financial contribution.

As enthusiastic as I am about my other pursuits, the main product produced here are my writings. New writings will be available to you as much as a week before they're posted to the public blog! Also, any paid projects I release such as games and albums will, if you sponsor above the $5 level, be made available to you free of charge. Various other perks are available at the other sponsor levels!
