My name is Bill, and I make stuff.

My main project is working with Jimmy Diresta on a book about his life as a maker, the progression of his career, and his advice to other makers. I recently spent a week with Jimmy in New York and I have hours and hours of material that I need to transcribe and organize. Patreon supporters will immediately gain access to a documentary about my time in NY that is just over 1 hour long.

I also make videos at my YouTube channel, One Car Workshop. I write articles about makers and making at Make: Magazine. I try to write articles about full-time makers and those who use their making to help other people. I also co-host a podcast, Makers' Hustle, about making things for a living.

Your pledge will allow me to devote more time to creating quality content. Right now, I am splitting my time between writing and client builds. The client work helps me pay the bills, but it's a necessity more than a passion. Given the choice, I would rather inspire others to make things than build bookshelves so I can keep the lights on.

If you want to support One Car Workshop but cannot make a pledge, you can also share my videos and articles with your friends and spread the word around social media. This is an enormous help and costs nothing.

No matter how you show your support, know that it is appreciated! Thanks!

All previous rewards, PLUS a quarterly Google Hangout with all Patreon supporters at this level so we can talk shop. Ask questions about the book, talk about upcoming projects, or just chat about what you're working on. I love to talk to other Makers and hear their stories!
