About T1J

Hi, I'm T1J!

I'll keep it short! I make video essays and livestreams on YouTube. I make videos about politics, pop culture, and philosophy.
The common thread on my channel is that I want to foster thoughtful conversations about topics that I think are important or interesting. I also want to make the case that we can be shrewd and socially aware while also being hopeful, compassionate and positive; and maybe even have some fun along the way!

Personally, I believe this concept is quite rare in the mainstream discourse on YouTube and social media--more commonly, we see a lot of cynicism and "us vs. them" mentality, and I'm not only talking about politics. So providing an alternative to that, even if only to a small extent; is perhaps my largest ambition.

If you find that valuable and worth supporting, I would be hugely appreciative!



What am I going to do with the money?

Due in large part to Patreon, I am able to create internet content as a full-time job. I do not take this lightly--I am eternally grateful to those that support me and literally allow me to make a living while doing something I love. Patreon helps me meet my financial obligations and put food on the table.

That said, it is important to note that no one should be feel pressured or put themselves in financial trouble to become a Patron. I am fortunate enough to have other income streams, so never feel as though I need your money in order to survive. I will be fine! Only support if you believe my content provides value to you or the world, and you'd like to help me make it even better.

Additionally, much of these funds will be reinvested into my content--purchasing new equipment, hiring people to help out, as well as acquiring any other resources that will help me improve and evolve my content, as well as allow me to create even more of it.

I am happy to share more detail into what kinds of investments I am making in order to make my videos better. As far as equipment goes, I have made an Amazon list of literally ever piece of audio and video equipment I've ever acquired for my channel and stream. Feel free to contact me if you're interested in any other details.

I think Patreon is a great way to support creators who are making amazing content. So here are some other creators I think you should check out and support if you have the means!

Phase 2
My channel has evolved multiple times, so this really wouldn't be "Phase 2", but once we reach a certain level of income, I can begin to be a lot more ambitious with YouTube. I don't have everything ironed out, but I'm talking new channels, more content, narrative work, music, and lots of other things! I love to create, and the more you guys give me the opportunity to do it, the more I will!
