THANK YOU!

In this “busy” world of ours, people hardly have time for pleasantries, you will hopefully quickly learn, I am not like most people. I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to navigate here and checking out my shenanigans.
WHO I’M I?
I am a guy in his mid-twenties who feels he is approaching his thirties too quickly. I am a professional photographer and filmmaker based in Kenya. My career path was however not initially planned on leading me into the creative arts. I studied information technology in Uni but by the time graduation was coming around, I was convinced, despite being relatively good at them, computers weren’t how I was going to make a living for the rest of my life. I wanted to live a purpose driven life; a life where I felt my work mattered; work that would give me a decent wage; work that would give me the latitude to leave a legacy I, and those that will come from me, will be proud of.
HOW I GOT HERE
I have just graduated with a degree I didn’t want to use, and an undefined career path. At the time, I was doing work online so I figured that might keep me busy as I figure out what path I will pursue. I had been an avid photographer growing up but had never even used a DSLR by the time was deciding I would travel take photos of undiscovered Kenya. I sat on the idea for months and I eventually took the leap. I had elected the path I will pursue is film-making and I would use photography to get there. My focus would be “self-make” build the skills required and build a solid business around said skills.
WHY I NEED YOUR SUPPORT
I have been on my ‘self-making’ path for the past two years and I have made tremendous progress. I was able to learn photography and filmmaking all on my own (thanks to youtube) and get myself some gear. However, balancing paying bills and making content has become a real impediment to my growth as a professional. I want to be able to focus full time on creating engaging and entertaining content without worrying where my lights will be on next month. That is why I need your support. Your support will enable me to cover my recurrent expenditure, freeing me up to create.
WHAT I NEED
$350 a month. This will cover recurrent expenditures. That all I need, the rest I will keep grinding.
WHAT DO YOU GET
Other than the warm-fuzzy feeling knowing you made the life of another human being a lot more fulfilling, I haven’t figured out what to give to my patrons. I plan on making 4 videos a month. The journey has just started. I will continue to create engaging and entertaining content.

Basic contribution but valued nonetheless. Every bit helps, with enough crumbs I can make a cookie.
