Hi, My name is Dr Pamela Gay, and I want to tell the story of science.

For more then 10 years, I've been finding stolen moments to write essays, and to narrate my own words and those of others. Very rarely, I even find time to do art. At the encouragement of those who know me best, I'm trying to find more time to create. With your support through Patreon, I can make the time I need to create things I hope you will find special. 

Who am I: I'm a PhD astrophysicist with experience in art, narration, and writing.

What I do: I create space-related art and essays, and I narrate science fiction stories and discuss the science in the stories. 

When you can expect content: I will work to create content 3 times a week, on Satudays, Tuesdays, and Thursday. When I can, I'll stream content creation live on Twitch, with completed works appearing for Patreons only once it is edited (text/audio) or dried (paint). This will typically be within 48 hours.

Where you can see my work: My content appears on starstryder.com, and on most social media under the username starstryder. You can also purchase my art on Redbubble and Etsy.

Why I need your support: My day job pays my bills, but it doesn't pay for my passions. I'm seeking funding to pay for software I use to create content (like Adobe Creative Cloud), to pay for cloud storage, and to replace technology when it end-of-lifes (like cameras and mics). I also like to buy the students and staff who work with me coffee and pizza.

At this level I can hire a student audio engineer to edit the final audio of everything I narrate. I will also be able cover the cost of all my software licenses, cloud services, and replacing hardware when it dies. This will help a student get their start while making it easier for me to create interesting content.
