Hi! I'm Ger, a writer and photographer from Boston. I write about Japan, history, travel, and cosplay. I also bring my camera with me wherever I go to capture cool places around the world. Writing and photography is my day job; I've published five books, have another one in the works, and sell my photos professionally.

I write fiction: 
The Sea-God at Sunrise and Paradise, an ongoing series inspired by the story of Japanese castaways in the 1800s, including John Manjiro, the first Japanese person to live in America
Waiting for Cherry Blossoms, short stories from my time living in Japan

I also write nonfiction, combining writing with my photography:
Breaking All The Rules: Cosplay and the Art of Self-Expression, a photobook and compilation of interviews from cosplayers from around the country talking about the joys and struggles of their creative hobby
Nothing But An Island, An upcoming photobook on my 8-year quest to follow John Manjiro's journey across the globe

Being a historical writer and non-commercial photographer is hard, and although I know I've got fans out there (thanks, guys!), sometimes expenses get a little overwhelming. This is where Patreon comes in! If you enjoy my stuff and want to see more, please consider pitching in a couple bucks every month.  It's a great way to ensure that you'll be supporting my work, and you can give as much or little as you want, and cancel any time.

Goals
$0 of $200 per month
I currently shoot with a 28-300mm Tamron on a Canon DSLR, which is lovely for general travel photography, but to get those really "wow" shots, I'd love to get a dedicated wide-angle camera lens. If I make $200 in funding a month, I can upgrade!
