My Name's Lee Baker and I've been creating content on Youtube for 10 years! (we were doing let's plays BEFORE it was cool!)
It started off as something fun to fill in my days but it quickly developed in to a life long passion where I could use what I was good at to connect, help and entertain people around the world! To this day I'm still amazed at how many people we've reached and how many memories and friendships we've made along the way! We've developed an amazingly close knit, fun community and I'm super excited for you to join in and be a part of it!

Why a Patreon page?
Despite being offered partnerships to monetize my content for a long time, I rejected the offers and spent most of my 10 year Youtube journey with out receiving a penny. I didn't want to "sell out" and let money dictate my motivation and direction of my content. However now I'm getting older, I have a beautiful wife and we're looking to start our life with our own place, I figured now was the best time to jump on this Patreon train so we can both get what we want!
Why not just monetize your videos then?
Being on Youtube for 10 years, I got to see and experience as both a viewer and a creator, the growth, changes, rise and ultimately, fall of Youtube's service and quality. I'm sure you're well aware of the strict, unspecified criteria in which Youtube demonetizes videos. In the past it would be simply due to copyrighted music but now it could be pretty much anything and as it's an automated process, most of the time a video is demonetized as a mistake or precaution with out any real cause! Because of this, a lot of my videos are simply ineligible for monetization.
