About Jo Zenk

Since Corona hit in march 2020, no money from my previous sponsors was sent (besides Grindhouse. they paid normal budget). I managed to pay my rent through a flexible home office job working for a software company. This way I can still ensure that my monthly bills are covered and money collected is completely spent on projects! :)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Welcome to my Patreon page.
I am Jo and I am an artist, athlete and social pedagogic - travelling and connecting people while trying to remain focused here & now.
As a rollerblader with a base in Münster, Germany, I was usually travelling the world almost constantly, creating visual content, pushing rollerblading individuals & collectives everywhere aside from studying back home. Now we are working more locally - as you can see on my YouTube which is filled with new videos from this years productive run so far.

►Background & funding:
As an international "PRO" for Grindhouse Skateshop, (also previously Pro for Remedyz skates, GCFrames & Reignliners) I have produced many videosections and won many competitions in many places. I am collaborating with Syeahskate from Athens as well as with Blade Life Company from the U.K.

                         - Patreon is my only true "PRO"-Sponsor
Even though I am very grateful for being sponsored from within the inline industry, the term 'PRO' apparently changed over time and while I was climbing up the wave of popularity slowly decreased which means I did not receive salary of any of my sponsors for being in their "Pro" teams. They provided me with hardware and they helped covering my travelexpenses.
But only  the small clothing companies I'm working with were ever able to pay me money that was not covering a ticket or other expenses.

Therefor, lots of my expenses can not be covered sufficiently at which point the patreon concept - and potentially YOU - come into play.

All money collected via patreon goes 200% back into blading, helping me to achieve my dreams and visions to create projects, travels and help me push blading my way. 

Back in the day, blading generated decent income for Pros while those never had to do more than skate. Now - You have to gather the skills of 10 different professionals to create content with your own hands while promoting it yourself throughout the many different social media platforms as well as planning, scheduling, postproduction, marketing and building a team of volunteers to help out for free - all while not getting paid by brands or having a team of employed promoters in your back.
I am standing up to change situation within the industry as well as trying to find new ways of working things.

Its about time we get independent and go the direct way - as freelancing individuals and collectives.


If you like my way of doing things and want to support you can pay what you want starting from 2$ - think of it as a coffee each month :) we try to stay in schedule and drop a video on YT every few weeks - so far it worked well this year :)

Giving back
Now I really want to give back to the community - with sharing what I can to improve anyones experience of rollerblading, travelling, creating content... I learned a lot through the years which could help you in many ways. I walked a good amount of path that might be similar to yours. So there is lots of experience to share :)

Without the help of my countless friends all over the world none of this would have been possible. With patreon, I am trying to expand this list of friends and supporters also on a financial level to really use the potential we have as collective. 
(btw no push to support financially! - this is meant for financially stabile blade enthusiasts - low amount each)

At the same time I might be able to make it easier for YOU to follow my footsteps to a certain degree, give advice to learn movements with possible shortcuts, grow your game the safest and quickest while increasing joy and fun along the way.

Aside of my own blading and teaching of it, I am filming and shooting pictures, I have managed the infamous Ground Control Team as well as their social media appearance for about 2 years until Corona hit - worked as a photographer, freelancer and general helping hand on many projects other than my own.

Becoming more and more conscious about health & the network we're part of adds to the enormous potential I feel while creating on a collaborative level.
With this tool here I might be able to give you some advice how to be your own best friend and take care about your body so you can enjoy blading even when you're older. Or even if you only started recently and feel "too old" for some things - you might be surprised what you can do with a few simple techniques to improve your physical and mental wellbeing.

Without the financial backing though, just so many things can be realized.
I am very grateful for your ongoing support!!
