Over the past couple of years, I've had the chance to work in Sri Lanka with impoverished teachers and students in the war-torn Northern Province, training them how to write, shoot, and edit educational videos. I got to work with organizations like the World Forestry Center and The Nature Conservancy in promoting health of Mother Nature and sustainability forestry. I’ve found myself involved in helping to build an innovative social emotional learning program with TEDx presenter Frank Fitzpatrick's Earthtones foundation for the nation’s schools that we presented in a Los Angeles Unified School District incubator school this year.



Before that, there was Kotori Magazine, a print publication I started the early 2000s that were very heavily centered around progressive ideas and thoughts and values that revolved around such topics as environmentalism and human rights.

Most recently, I found myself at the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation with the over 200 Native American tribes and organizations and Water Protectors that have gathered to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline from crossing through sacred tribal territory and under the Missouri River, threatening to contaminate their only source of water. I was there covering the situation for AJ+ using new 360˚ video technology, an incredible new way to bring news and important events and stories to viewers in a very immersive and empathic medium.



It has become apparent, that now, more than ever, after the election of Donald Trump to the Presidency of the United States, that our actions and organizations to protect human rights and the environment are more important than ever. I refuse to allow the platform of bigotry and exclusion that he ran on to flatten drive, but rather to use it as motivation to double up on that drive.

Mobilize. Assimilate. Organize.

Anyhow, if you’re at all familiar with this chosen type of art and philanthropic lifestyle, it’s not the easiest to make a living. It truly is a labor of love, and most of the hours put into these efforts and creations are in addition to the hours spent just trying to make ends meet each month. But I have made a dedication to supporting and bringing attention to the progressive causes that I feel are important for the survival of our nation…of our planet.



I love making images, videos, and writing. I always have. Telling stories, whether they be mine or someone else's - personal stories or those of causes and ideas I believe in. Anyone that knows me or has grown to know me knows this. And this is an easy way to help me continue doing these things that, I certainly hope, give you a bit of enjoyment, information, pleasure, a smile, a smirk...something. Knowing that someone is out there doing their small part of the bigger movement to improve the culture, the planet, through attention.

In any case, I hope that you can see the value in this and if you are able to help, you have NO idea how appreciative I would be. I am not a well to do person, at ALL. And programs like this will help enable me to keep doing the work I love doing, and the work I feel so strongly that needs to be done. This is a great thing tool that Patreon has created, and I hope that after a bit of thought, you will understand how far your simple pocket change can go.

If you have it in you to pledge a buck or more each month, you will forever have my gratitude. I will try my hardest to continue to create content and produce work that I hope you will enjoy and be proud of. And furthermore, I will try even harder to produce work that can hopefully help leave the world a bit better than we found it.

With much love and humility,
