Hello! I'm Jared…a vlogger 📺, photographer 📷, podcaster 🎙, and writer ✍️ who lives in Portland, Oregon 🌲. (I also really 💛 emojis.)

Fan-Supported Creator Community

When I survey the vast landscape of creativity and epic awesomness across the web today, there's one constant in numberous cases that has made it possible for people to become creators and pursue doing what they love. That's Patreon.

Patreon is simply amazing. It lets creators and fans build a community together—creators get to receive financial support for their fans, and fans get to receive special notes, sneak previews, art pieces, gifts, and more directly from the creators they love. But you probably know all this because you're already here on Patreon.

So what am I going on about anyway? WHY SHOULD YOU EVEN CARE?!?! Glad you asked. (Really, I am.) 🥳

What I'm Producing:

➡️ Essential Life with Jared is my vlog series all about adventure in Portland & the Pacific Northwest combined with the philosophy of essentialism. It's about finding your own way and never walking somebody else's path. It's about living a creative life that's most meaningful to you.

➡️ The Jared White Show is a weekly podcast where we gather to celebrate the best of internet culture, advocate for an open web, revel in geek fandom, and discover what it means to be a creator of integrity in 2020 and beyond.

➡️ In addition, I also regularly post links, articles, and photography on my website at jaredwhite.com, my OpenWeb.social Mastodon instance, as well as Instagram and Twitter. I also write a funny newsletter where I flex my comedy muscles. (They're in there somewhere. I swear!)

I Can't Wait to Meet You!

If any of these productions appeal to you, I invite you to become a patron! 🎉 Become a part of this creator community and gain access to behind-the-scenes details and upcoming previews of my content. Plus, for the $10 tier or higher, you can join my growing network of open web and essentialism enthusiasts and converse in our private forum. Thanks in advance, and I appreciate your support of independent creators!

(And by “creators”, I mean me of course.) 😈
