About Ken Eucker

"All dogs are therapy dogs, some are just freelancing."

I am a Writer, Creator, Maker, and Philosopher of many languages, syntaxes, grammars, and keywords;

As a web developer I have a unique opportunity to help others create something online that represents who they are, what they do, or what they have to offer to the world. Custom web development is expensive and I formed my own LLC back in 2011 to work as a freelance developer. My hourly rate, which hasn't changed since I first started contracting, is eighty dollars an hour and that was based on half of what my previous employer was billing to clients for my hour. In continuing to work for web development agencies, I have seen this number increase, and my last position was billed at one hundred eighty-five dollars an hour to the client. The problem here is that I don't often meet individuals who can afford to pay one hundred eighty-five dollars an hour for my work. Regardless, I do want to help these people get their ideas out there for others to see.

This is where you, my patreons, can be involved in helping me be the change I want to see in the world. I want to continue doing what I do best without the hurdles of a fiscal year, budget constraints, or a lack of return on investment. I see my investment as continued education and growth, while enabling others to invest in their own growth and prosperity. Ever since I was a young child I felt the need to help people. People often say "be the change you want to see in the world" and I am here to do exactly that.

I began writing at a young age, starting with poetry that doesn't rhyme and short stories about my experience with society. I have always enjoyed writing as a cathartic experience to attempt to relate to the world that can be confusing or frustrating at times, though recently I have found that I enjoy writing in many different forms. As a person who writes in machine languages in addition to human languages I have often sought to write stories that combine the these two worlds. 

Life can be expensive. And while I have a definitive need to make an income that can pay my bills, I don't want to feel like all I am doing is making money with a job to pay said bills.

I believe in an open source lifestyle. I believe in collaboration and the sharing of ideas to further all of our best interests. I believe in a world where we can give away our ideas and support those ideas to help one another. Ultimately, my goal is to find a way to support my desire to help others without having a monetary value placed on my work.
