TOO LONG, DIDN'T READ: I'm a content creator of two decades (and counting) focusing predominately on written works and live video broadcasts. I am a former world record video game speedrunner, accomplished author within the furry fandom, and have been producing the Gatorbox livestream since 2012. This tl;dr summary does not provide enough space for me to enumerate the various accolades I've earned and the productions I have worked on! Your pledge will help me in continuing to devote time to these projects alongside my regular job. Thanks!! <3

WHAT IS GATORBOX:
Gatorbox, launched 2012, is a Twitch & YouTube-based variety channel. Its content is focused around gaming and unboxing, however the show differentiates itself from "everyone else" by showcasing obscure, forgotten, and even media considered to be "lost". Because of this Gatorbox is a one-of-a-kind show that celebrates everything that time has left behind.

Gatorbox rose to prominence in 2015 with the series Your Level Sucks, a show based around criticizing community levels submitted to Super Mario Maker. The channel is also known for its annual Extra Life charity marathon benefitting children's hospitals. Gatorbox is also a partner of ZOOM Platform, a company that specializes in re-releasing old computer games, and often acts as ZOOM's bullhorn for new re-releases.

WHO IS DRACOKON:
I'm André Kon but most people know me as "Dracokon", a name I adopted online in 2007. Prior to that I was known by the even more ridiculous moniker "Raptor Millennium III". I am an avid writer and I got my start in 1995 with a local comedy troupe at the school I attended. We produced some spoken word albums, a couple indie "magazines", some live shows, and a web series that lasted for 51 episodes. Around 2000/2001 I began concurrently writing short stories within the furry fandom and by the end of the decade had become a fairly well known niche adult author. I traveled to conventions as a guest and in 2013 had some work featured in a NYC performance art show.

I graduated from Texas A&M University with honors in 2011 with a degree in the field of multimedia broadcasting. I also formerly worked for a television station for a few years so I have a unique perspective that I feel helps me get the most out of livestreaming and create a higher quality show. Some of the things I use to produce Gatorbox actually came from TV studios when they were replacing old equipment with newer stuff.

HOW YOUR PLEDGE WILL HELP:
Funds raised through Patreon will, in some way or another, go back into Gatorbox to improve the show. Whether it's to outright purchase new equipment, procure some weird stuff to make a show about, or simply try out new ideas for projects the goal is to hopefully get to the point where Gatorbox can "pay for itself". In the past, Patreon pledges have gone toward building practical props (Prize-O-Matic) and purchasing new equipment (Loot Cam 2000).

Alternatively, in regards to how your pledge can help me as a writer of fantasy stories, the explanation is a little less nebulous. By supporting me on Patreon you would in essence be helping me justify something such as taking one day off of work per week (for example) to focus purely on creating stories and other sorts of "titillating" things.

I created this Patreon page as a sort of "catch-all" for everything I do as opposed to making separate ones because I felt like that had the potential to get confusing and overwhelming very easily. I realize that saying "I'm a livestreamer AND I also write furry smut" is kind of a hard sell but what I'm hoping happens is no matter what it is I do that you enjoy that you pledge to me accordingly for that reason. In short you're helping bolster me financially so that I can afford (literally) to devote time to these projects of mine guilt-free, and for that I am sincerely thankful.

Thank you for checking out my Patreon page, and I look forward to many more years of making great stuff!

At this point I really don't know what else I have to offer so consider this a "super" version of the $25 tier, you'll get everything from that tier plus maybe some other goodies? If you pledge at this level Patreon will ask you for a mailing address just in case something comes to mind that I can send as a gift to show my gratitude.

$69 of $100 per month
BASIC COSTS COVERED!
I don't expect to make a fortune on Patreon or the various sites I host my content on, but I do think it would be really cool if my hobbies at least earned enough to break even. $100 is also a nice round number to shoot for that seems actually do-able.
