I joined Patreon a year ago, and it’s been the best decision I’ve made in the last couple of years. Patreon has shifted my creative process: I can take the time to work on personal projects and create new material without having to worry about anything else. This is the first time in my life I have the space to do this, and I’m incredibly grateful.
