Hi folks! Thanks for showing interest in my creations!
I like to present myself as a modern-day "Bard".
I write & tell stories, poetry, available online or as publications.
I'm also a "Multimedia Artist" -- I tell Visual Stories.
I'm also a Voice Actor. Many of my stories will be available as Audio Books.

My dream is to provide FREE QUALITY RESOURCES for cash-strapped churches, schools and community organisations, although I wouldn't refuse certain businesses who hire my services.
If you can help me out (by sponsoring me) it will release me to do what I do best: Create!
Your contributions will certainly be recognised in the credits at the end of each sponsored piece.
I will announce and describe each new project to my patrons.

To see an example of my combined skills, have a look at the Video above.

Goals
0% complete
Primary Financial Goal: $2500
I aim to reach this goal by the end of the financial year (June 30th, 2018).
This will allow me to:
1. Concentrate on creating new stories -- written and visual -- for the community (instead of constant marketing or commercial projects.)
2. Continue and expand this level of creativity beyond the financial year's end.
3. Aim to complete one brief story per fortnight, or one major project per month.
I believe that I owe it to you, my patrons, to be transparent about spending your generous donations. So I have listed some specific expenses below.

* Part of my work involves a subscription to the Adobe Creative Cloud Suite + Adobe Stock Images which is paid annually, costing around $1400/year, paid up front.
* I also subscribe to the Microsoft Office Suite, which I use both for my writing (MS Word) and for quick and easy, quality multimedia stories (MS PowerPoint). This amounts to around $130/year, paid up front.
* I also have a yearly membership to POND5, who provide thousands of useful, licensed, royalty-free video clips for my visual stories. Membership = $670/year.
* Anything over and above this goal will help to cover miscellaneous costs, such as theme music, maintenance of equipment etc.
