THANK YOU!!!
Thank you so much for visiting my Patreon page. I produce two shows, Travelosophy and Jade Talks Stuff.

My podcast, Travelosophy is about life lessons learnt from travel. When I was 11 years old, my mum and I spent a year travelling through Asia and Europe (yes I skipped a year of school, but she was a teacher so technically I was home schooled).  As you could imagine, that trip changed my life, instilling in me values that aren’t taught in the classroom and inspiring a life filled with travel.

Travelosophy isn’t just another travel podcast telling you where you should go next, it’s about how travel changes people; how witnessing different cultures, religions, and lifestyles helps make the world a better place through awareness and understanding. Of course I talk about intriguing places I’ve been (including how to get there), and how to improve your travel photos, but it’s more about inspiring listeners to travel further, immerse yourself deeper, and not to fear the world, but to learn from it.

Jade Talks Stuff is a podcast about anything and everything. Through an addiction to news and documentaries, I’ve amassed a wealth of knowledge about a diverse range of topics including sharks, clouds, art, and the brain to name a few. 

Besides the podcasts, I’m also a writer, currently finishing off my first novel, which is a complicated travel-love story set between Sydney and the Outback. In conjunction with my podcast, I write useful travel articles and blog posts, solving real travel problems and sharing everything I know from years of living, breathing, and working in travel. The blog posts are an opportunity to see my incredible travel photos in action.

As you could imagine, doing all these things, takes a lot of time, in fact pretty much all my time...

Why Patreon?
In a perfect world, I would be paid a living wage for all of the useful and incredible content I provide. Unfortunately I don’t. Yet!
I joined patreon so I could easily share my creative content, with genuine fans. Unlike the vast emptiness of the internet, Patreon is a singular place for everything I do and I love the idea of providing exclusive content for fans who can follow my creative journey, and appreciate everything I do. Patreon also allows the podcast to grow, so you get more episodes, greater content, more guests.

Why You’re Important
With your assistance, you’ll be ensuring the day to day operations of Travelosophy (like website hosting, recording software, and essentials like coffee) continue, and knowing these are taken care of, allows me to spend more time creating awesome content just for you. 

The Future
By becoming a patron, you’ll be assisting to improve the equipment used so I can purchase additional microphones for face to face interviews, better quality equipment for distance interviews, and ultimately I’d relish being able to move out of my current living situation, into my own place where I can set up a full time studio, capable of interviewing guests and fans. A quiet place where I can record podcasts, at any time uninterrupted. Even better would be to visit fans in regional centers and host a live show, knowing travel costs, accommodation, and transport was taken care of, and wasn’t going to mean not eating for two weeks. With your patronage, these plans can be a reality.

Am I Really Helping by giving a $1?
Yes. Definitely. Not only does financial help ensure I can continue doing this; but by showing your appreciation, lets me know that what I’m doing is worthwhile and I must keep doing it.
Every bit helps, no matter how small.
Being a creative requires long hours, with sometimes little contact with the outside world. Knowing I have fans, who love what I do, is like a warm hug, on a cold day. 

What Do You Get Out of it?
Besides warm fuzzies and a smile, you’ll get a host of exclusive content ranging from additional podcast episodes, recordings of my poetry, copies of my books, downloadable photographs (I’ve sold these in exhibitions for hundreds of dollars). Basically whatever I produce, I’ll ensure Travelosophy Patreon members get first dibs. Also my entire brain is filled with travel knowledge that needs to be shared. I’ve spent years travelling, working in travel, and teaching travel. I’m not asking for handouts, I’m providing incredible content, and knowledge, offering real value. Check out the various tiers for all the amazing stuff you can have access to, once you join.

Together We Can Do This
I have dreams of making a real difference in this world, where travel is a part of everyone’s life. Where children are taught multiple languages and cultures are celebrated and revived. I don’t have any concrete plans yet, but that’s where you come in. How are we going to make this happen? 

So Why Sharks?
I’ve been obsessed with sharks since I was a little kid. They’re awesome. They haven’t changed for millions of years because they’re perfect, they don’t need to.
They’re also crucial to healthy oceans. Without sharks, their prey repopulate exponentially which then disrupts the entire eco-system. Contrary to media, sharks don’t eat people, they eat mostly fish. So by talking about sharks in a positive light and sticking with facts, we can all help reduce the anti-shark sentiment that has been around since the 70’s.

On that note, are you more of a mystical ghost shark, a majestic hammerhead or more of a great white shark? Check out the tiers to find your match!

Thank you so much for checking out my patreon page, and thank you in advance for helping make Travelosophy and Jade Talks Stuff bigger and better than ever!

Thank you.
