About Jay Versluis

Hi I'm Jay Versluis, and I've been a content creator for nearly 20 years (before I knew this was a job). I explain complex stuff so that ordinary humans (like me) can understand it. I believe anyone can learn anything if the subject matter is presented well enough.

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

Your support on Patreon means I can devote more time and effort on maintaining and growing all these wonderful projects, create new content, answer comments and make the world a better place. If monthly donations aren't your thing, don't worry - there's a whole bunch of other ways to support me too.

I run a YouTube channel and several websites, grouped by topic:

  • versluis.com - 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 (mothballed)

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.

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

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!
