Who am I?
I've been a visual storyteller and world builder since I was little. From creating a world where turkeys with blunderbusses chase pilgrims and Indians, to building models for epic WW2 battle dioramas, telling a story visually has always been a key component.

I love building worlds, creating and exploring everything within the world and then telling all the stories inspired by it.   I also love gaming, teaching, graphic novels and motion comics so why not combine everything and share my processes and progress as I build my storyworld and work on visual storytelling. 



What's a Storyworld?
A storyworld refers to the shared universe within which the settings, characters, objects, events, and actions of one or more narratives exist. Often used for transmedia storytelling across multiple platforms and formats.

A favorite example is the Overwatch universe, using not only the game itself, but comics, an Alternate Reality Game (ARG) and obviously animated shorts to tell multiple stories within the overwatch universe.


What is Patreon?
Patreon is a service where you can pledge to send a regular payment to creators, so they can support themselves and keep making new stuff.

                

Patreon is better for creators than advertising or sponsorship. The content is 100% uncompromised, payment is more predictable, and creators don't need to stoop to clickbait content or other shady practices.
Patreon allows creators to serve their community, not advertisers or corporate sponsors




Why am I on Patreon?
I want to build worlds and universes (storyworlds) that everyone can explore, play in and use to inspire their own imagination and creativity. No matter the type of media one uses, there's a place in the world for it. Combine medias or let one media inspire another because the possibilities, like the number of worlds,  are practically endless.


The more worlds created the more opportunities for people to find something that interests them. If I can help others build their worlds along the way that's an added bonus.

In order to create and share all these worlds I'll need to have software, equipment and hosting sites. So by using Patreon I plan to reduce or completely cover the associated costs.

    


What do you get in return?
In addition to my ramblings on world building, storyworlds and visual storytelling,  I will have the following Patreon tiers available. (Full descriptions of each tier are available on the FAQ page.)
