Hi I'm Jay Versluis, and I explain complex stuff in human terms. I believe anyone can learn anything if the subject matter is presented in a way that people like you and I can understand it. 

I love software, and all the beautiful things it can do on the right machines - but nothing annoys me more than badly documented apps, or badly designed UIs.

For each area of my many interests I've started taking notes on public websites since 2006, some of which have become rather popular over time:

  • versluis.com - my personal website about creative 2D and 3D software (such as DAZ Studio, Blender, ZBrush, Photoshop and a lot more)
  • The WP Guru - my hacking and coding blog about Linux, macOS, Windows, WordPress, Commodore and web development
  • my iOS Dev Diary - about Objective-C coding, iOS and macOS development

I also have a YouTube channel that serves as a pool to store screencasts on all the above topics. 

Between 2015 and 2017 I was going through a rough patch when I was diagnosed with colon cancer. I've survived thanks to immunotherapy. It was a very unique case, hence I've recently devoted a whole new project to the whole topic at supersurvivor.tv. The site features articles on how to survive cancer while staring death in the face, as well as my video diary of the whole journey, plus post survivor notes. Anything related to any illness really. The project has a separate YouTube channel here.

Your patronage means I can devote my full time and effort on maintaining and growing all these wonderful projects, and create new ones if and when necessary.

Thanks for stopping by, and thank you for your support!

Goals
$190 of $500 per month
At this stage I could afford lighting equipment and another camera or two for better looking videos. I'm thinking interviews, image stabilisation, perhaps even the odd assistant here and there. Think about the amount of handsome looking content this could produce!
