What I've Done & What I Do:
I have over 14 years of experience in graphic design and web design & have been a prolific freelance writer on geek culture in general, and video games in particular, since 2006. I've been published on 1up.com, featured on the front page of Yahoo.com, and in the magazine PC Gamer. I've also co-hosted a podcast called Geekly Weekly.

I maintain a blog covering fandoms like video games, comics, tabletop gaming, sci-fi & fantasy with a progressive bent called The Code. It focuses on marginalized voices and advocates for more inclusiveness in media fandoms and sub-cultures.

I also create experimental  electronic music and art prints & apparel under the name lowercase t and perform improvisational readings with the Overly Dramatic Readers.

I also help people!
  • I co-host several charity fundraisers with The Munchausen Society every year
  • Advocate for strong anti-harassment policies and safe spaces at conventions
  • Organize public relations, media outreach, recorded an audio book & designed the website for a disabled dad's panel on disability for Bronycon; it was so successful he was invited back 2 more times!
  • Work with other survivors of abuse
  • Make business cards for everyone from artists to computer engineers 
  • Ghost-written over 200 articles for Textbroker clients
I want to keep doing this work, and working with & helping people and also be compensated for my time and effort. My ultimate dream is to be able to offer a bi-monthly podcast along with a blog updated every day of the week. I know times are rough for a lot of people, so I've set this campaign to pay monthly-- no matter how much I do or produce, you'll only be charged the amount you chose once per month.

Man can't live on ramen alone. Well, you can, I've done it, but the less I'm worrying about where my next meal comes from, the more I can focus on curating and creating content. I'll also review two novelty foods item per month.
