About James


Videos. Articles. & a PhD.


Thanks for finding me on this site. If you've made it this far, you're probably already interested in the projects I'm working on, and maybe you'd like to be a part of them.

I'm a PhD candidate, freelance writer, and storyteller. I love finding new stories, exploring local legends, folk practices, and mysteries. Chances are you do too. I want to share my research and what I'm discovering with you through videos, articles, and other multimedia.

What am I working on?
Broadly, my interest is recovering lost heritage and forgotten narratives. More specifically, I'm working on a PhD in Taiwan exploring shrines and cemeteries and their associated folk practices.

As I research, I create videos, articles, and posts about the subject and the field work. Not surprisingly, exploring one story leads to another and another. It's a big, mysterious world out there.

How can you help?
This research takes a lot of time and work, so I've created this Patreon.

Your support helps sustain my research and gets me out into the field. In return, I am able to bring back more stories, discoveries, and new mysteries to share with you. As a way to say thanks, as a supporter, you'll be credited in my videos, receive newsletters, and go behind the scenes with me.

How it works.
Patreon is a safe and secure platform for content creators to connect with and receive financial support from fans and supporters. It's a monthly subscription-based system. Once you select the tier, Patreon will make monthly charges to your bank or credit card. In return, your choice of donation tier unlocks special regularly-occurring rewards I have to offer as a way of saying thank you for your support. You can also cancel at any time.

Small donations add up, and Patreon allows generous supporters a safe and secure way to help content creators out.

Take a look around and find the tier that best matches your interests. Thanks!
