HELLO AND WELCOME!

My name is clearly Andrew and this is my patreon page. For those unfamiliar with me, let me run you through a brief history of my time on the internet:


The year was 2011, YouTube was still a growing market in terms of potential content creation and PewDiePie wasn't even popular. I and my friend Keith decided to create a hip new channel in the new emerging market of 'Let's Playing'. Turns out people weirdly enjoyed watching others play video games on the internet, and thus spawned the creation of The SaD Games. After attempting to make the channel viable for a handful of years (7 to be exact), trying my hand at streaming on Twitch and Keith going on to create his own far more successful YouTube Let's Play channel, I decided to pack it all up and move on from what clearly wasn't my strong suit. In that window of time, I was insane enough to create a Twitter and Instagram account which I frequently use for some reason or another.


So now that you are up to speed you might be wondering; why did I bother reading all that and what does it have to do with why this patreon page exists? To put it simply, I am practically worthless. More specifically, I lack most of the needed corporate qualifications in order to actually be successful as an adult due in large to multiple missteps in my life which resulted in me having a plethora of knowledge but little to no experience outside of personal projects. This means that not only is finding a job in the specific career field I want seemingly impossible, but it also means I am struggling to survive to boot. Granted this is starting to sound more like a 'woe is me' story you'd find on a GoFundMe page rather than a patreon page which exists to support something who is giving something back in some way. Let's turn that around shall we?
While I may not be a master of the arts, a god of creation or a comedian for the ages I do possess some ability to do things. Those things, in particular, tend to range from writing odd poetry to creating somewhat engaging video content. So I feel as though while it may not be the career I want, it is certainly an ability I possess that can at the very least ensure my continued survival.

TL;DR: I'm Coming Back.



I feel as though I should give just a bit more detail as to what exactly this patreon page exists for; I want to start creating content again for people. Be that short stories, poetry, cooking videos or streaming myself playing video games. I enjoyed the small interactions I had with viewers, and I also enjoy creating things. What I didn't like was the stress that came with trying to constantly figure out what exactly I wanted to make, who to make it for, and how to keep that sort of creativity constantly flowing amid focusing on various other life-related factors and expenses. In this iteration of content creation, I plan to start from the ground up so to speak. No corpse resurrections or junkyard mashups. My old YouTube Channel (The SaD Games) will stay as it is; a time capsule of creations past. However being that my Twitch page never really took off or became anything more than a simple place to sometimes randomly stream games, I will rebrand it to be more akin to whatever direction I decided to go ( immediately being a hypocrite) and my personal website will be slowly converted into both a portfolio/resume for my professional work on top of being a hub for those seeking any manner of content creation I am dabbling in.


Lastly, let me give a brief overview of myself for those who have no clue as to who I am or anything about me:

I'm Andrew, a 29-year-old straight white male who is unmarried and childless. I grew up in a little town on the lower north side of California (sandwiched in-between San Francisco and Sacramento). I have a passion for technology, video games, and anime, all of which is unsurprising given my marital status and general physical traits. In late August of 2018 I decided to make a large change in my otherwise almost blurringly boring life; I packed two suitcases and moved to Dubai, UAE. Now that might seem a bit odd, but for context, I have provided this lovely picture to bring context to that decision...

As you can see, clearly I am not of right mind ( I mean who wears a white shirt and brown pants?) and while my brief time in this country hasn't exactly been easy, or successful, it has been an experience of a lifetime and one I am doing anything in my power to make work. When I am not busy struggling to live, I can be found riding horses, taking selfies in front of various locations with the exact same smile, and on very rare occasions travelling. So that is me. I could go much more into detail but I have already done so on various other mediums, and any other questions you might want to ask about me I would direct you to simply doing so on Twitter.
