About Jesse

Hi, I'm Jesse. I'm known by many other names, depending on the medium, subject, whatever. Da 1 Like Damaja, DJ Demonseed, neur0mancer, DNE Productions, Project Ebi Tamago, Cian, Cian of Tara, JC Fawcett Photography, nAble Media, nAble Gaming, The DNE Group, SlushWear.com, OgamiItto, and many many others. I've got my hand in a lotta pots, trying to find success in something. I'm a musician, photographer. I do digital graphics. I dabble in writing. I used to make websites, but my skills have gotten behind the times; I still make my own though. I conceptualize games, mostly MMORPGs, and try to make them happen. I've previously worked as a coder, but don't really have sufficient skills to build a game. I create, or at least conceptualize, companies and non-profit organizations. I create recipes, usually simplified versions of more complicated ones that are easy for people with disabilities to make, though I sometimes invent my own from scratch as well. And, of course, I crowdfund.

I do all this because I'm disabled, probably for the rest of my life, due to a condition that's kinda like a mild form of ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease), the same thing that Stephen Hawking has. Sadly I'm not quite as smart as him, so I have less chance of getting by on my intellect alone. Apart from that, I also have multiple learning disabilities, some social anxiety, some hearing/ear issues, and I strongly suspect I might also be autistic. I don't really have much in the way of prospects at all, other than being on disability the rest of my life. Doing these things is also my primary outlet for creative expression. I'm driven to create, though not necessarily always complete, these concepts and projects. It's a lotta work, and often expensive too, and I'm hoping maybe I can find some way to get something out of this beyond simply satisfying the urge. Especially since I really need gear, and a studio (actually 2, one for photography and one for music, but they can be in the same building, and for now I can get by with my bedroom music studio).

I tend to work in spurts of creativity, rather than consistently over time. And most of the stuff I work on doesn't get past the stage of sketching out the rough idea. But since I create a wide variety of products with a significant variation in value and the amount of work involved, I've opted for a monthly support plan. Creating a photograph typically involves between 1 and 20 minutes of work. Creating a song generally involves between 4 and 12 hours of work. Creating a company or a non-profit organization can involve over 10 years of work. So I can't really value all of those equally. Even small monthly contributions will be greatly appreciated.

I never want to just ask for money for nothing (although I wouldn't say no to donations), so I'm offering music, photography, and writing to my supporters. I have an album of ambient/semi-classical improvisation music available, and lots of individual songs. I'm working on an album of low-key macro photography, which is progressing slowly but is mostly done--I don't have an exact timeline for when it'll be finished though, but I've sold one copy already so I'm committed to getting it done. I have a bunch of recipes and a game character build guide for $1+ patrons, and a bunch of tracks for the Trackmania racing game series. I'm also offering metalprints of my photos in various sizes; square format costs a little more to print, so it's a slightly higher price.

Apart from this Patreon account, I have a number of long-term crowdfunding campaigns, where I'm raising money for music gear, lenses, and general life expenses, as well as for my non-profit, MetaCROWD.
Goals
$0 of $50 per month
For $50 a month, I can get an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription to use for my graphics and video editing work, rather than trying to get by with free software. I can do a lot with The GIMP, but it's much less efficient to work with than Photoshop. The same applies to many other tools I use.
