When I first fell in love with pro wrestling, I fell hard. I was able to turn this love into full-time career as a journalist and editor for Uproxx Sports and With Spandex, but a series of devastating head injuries in the last few years have completely upended my life as I knew it.

Not being medically cleared to do the thing I love the most not only left me financially in a pickle (a very technical term, stick with me though), but emotionally at an all-time low. I turned to photography so I could keep telling the stories of independent wrestlers, but in a way that works with my Post-Concussion Syndrome and its various but honestly pretty nasty side effects. Not only has this boosted my own mental health considerably, but has let me share my passion for independent wrestling to a whole new audience. By working with companies like EVOLVE, PROGRESS, Alpha-1, Ring of Honor, and New Japan Pro Wrestling, I was able to not only build a portfolio, but find the support and enthusiasm for my work behind the curtain that inspired me to continue on with it.

Your Patreon subscriptions will help fund things like:

  • transportation to and from shows
  • ordering new prints
  • creation of digital video content
  • unique physical merchandise such as photobooks, t-shirts, and stickers
  • frivolous lifestyle items, such as food and rent


Independent Wrestling is the best thing in the world to me, and with the efforts and support of the Patreon community, I hope to show you why.

Goals
$55 of $300 per month
Staying Fed During SummerSlam Week

The more shows I can get to, the more content I'm able to create. This amount will cover my expenses during SummerSlam week as I won't be back home during that time. These expenses include: transportation to and around Toronto, food, extra prints, lowkey stalking Daisuke Sekimoto, and the obscene amount of protein cookies and energy drinks I consume on show days.  

Patrons at the $15 and above tiers will receive an exclusive photo zine from the week in addition to their monthly subscriptions. 

Contributors at the $2 and $5 tiers will receive select shots curated and sent as a digital collection in addition to their monthly subscriptions.
