Science Art Fusion (or ScienceAF for short) brings professional creative and performing arts training to the science community. Our workshops, online classes, and downloadable guides for science communicators draw experience from the worlds of performing arts, creative writing, and professional comedy and apply that knowledge to science communication.
You can learn more about all that here:

www.scienceartfusion.com.

Here are some of the benefits you can get as a patron (these vary by support level):

Friday Wrap-up
Every Friday I post an update including anecdotes from my adventures over the past week. I list out a bunch of things I'd recommend, some of which are applicable to science communication, but most of which are just very enjoyable experiences, articles, songs, and food items. 

Green Room Guides (Coming Soon)
Even if you never plan to step foot on stage or screen, you can learn a lot from the professionals who make theatre and films happen. Each of these guides focuses on the skills, knowledge and best practices a single artist has gained over their career. Each guide then goes over potential applications these nuggets of wisdom have in the world of science communication. 

ScienceAF Essential Guides
Want to know how to run a DIY Improv day for you and your co-workers? Do you want to not only know how to use a microphone but also how to troubleshoot common audio-visual problems? Would your life be so much easier if you had a simple-to-follow set of steps to keep every event you plan on time and running smooth? These in-depth guides will walk you through the steps you need to be a rockstar of communication. 

Patron Webinars
As a patron, you'll have a chance to attend special 1-hour webinars on topics chosen by you!

And more to come!

About me:

I'm a writer, performer, and science communicator with over ten years of experience. I've created a science variety show that has toured all over the east coast (and been to Canada!). I've been published by HowStuffWorks, Southern Fried Science, TEDx, McSweeneys, National Lampoon, Weekly Humorist, Redbook, and more. I've worked with: Georgia Tech, The Society For Conservation Biology, Atlas Obscura, The Science Festival Alliance, Dragon Con, Geek Girl Con, Atlas Obscura, Nerd Nite DC/Atlanta/Baltimore, Atlanta Science Festival, Story Collider, and more.
Tiers
Tardigrade
$1 or more per month
Your monthly contribution, although small but mighty like the amazing tardigrade, will not allow you to survive in the vacuum of space (unlike the tardigrade).

It will, however, grant you access to my Patron-only feed.

Rewards:

Patron feed.
Friday wrap-up.
Dwarf Lantern Shark
$5 or more per month
Much like the dwarf lantern shark, your monthly contribution gives light to a sea of darkness (they're bioluminescent)!

While this tier won't grant you light-producing photospheres like the lantern shark has, it does mean that you'll have access to the Greenroom Guides.

Rewards:

Patron feed.
Friday wrap-up.
Greenroom Guides.
Blobfish
$10 or more per month
Your contribution, much like the deeply understood blobfish, is a thing of beauty, especially when I'm under all this pressure!  

Unlike the blobfish, it won't suddenly become disformed when that pressure goes away. At least, I hope not!

Rewards:

Patron feed.
Friday wrap-up.
Greenroom Guides.
Science AF Essential Guides.
Sea Otter
$15 or more per month
Your generous contribution is a wonderful tool I can use for feeding myself, much like the tools the crafty sea otter keeps in the pockets of skin under their arms!

Rewards:

Patron feed.
Friday wrap-up.
Greenroom Guides.

ScienceAF Essential Guides.
Special discounts.
Early access to ScienceAF products and content.

Basking Shark, AKA Wow Thats A Lot Of Money Are You Sure About That
$100 or more per month
Right now my face resembles the face the basking shark, the second largest living fish, makes to filter feed krill through their gill rakers.

Rewards:

Patron feed.
Friday wrap-up.
Greenroom Guides.
Special discounts.
Early access to ScienceAF products and content.
ScienceAF Essential Guides library.
