When I started streaming Star Citizen it was for one reason:
To share my passion for Star Citizen with as many people as I can!

It started out as just a fun hobby, something to distract me from the hardship of filing an appeal with the VA concerning my military-based disabilities. My first channel, SpartanM064, was mildly successful but taught me a lot about what it takes to run a Twitch channel.

I set aside streaming for some months to help my Mother with the family business and focus on my mental health programs through the VA. I'm happy to report that I'm in a much better place now but I won't be able to hold a "normal" 9-5 job. Now my wife, Lady Nighthawk, and I are expecting out first child together, Babyhawk! It's extremely exciting and at the same time very stressful. Because of this I've decided to grab the proverbial bull by its horns and dive into full-time Star Citizen content creation as my career. My plan is to add to this creative, passionate community through informative and interactive entertainment.

Twitch           http://www.twitch.tv/nighthawk_zale
YouTube       https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9IGifESkWt-Lk7dk...

The goals of both my Twitch and YouTube channels are to provide the community with entertaining and informative content to instill a passion for Star Citizen in others!

  Traverse the 'Verse
Everyone enjoys a well-designed tabletop game. That's why I've taken it upon myself to create a tabletop gaming experience worthy of Star Citizen. I stream the game's development over Twitch Monday through Friday beginning at 11am PST (7pm GMT). Join me as I openly develop a new Star Citizen experience you can take with you anywhere you may go!
DISCLAIMER: Traverse the 'Verse is a fan project with no ties to Cloud Imperium Games, Roberts Space Industries, or the Star Citizen project. We are, however, attempting to speak with Cloud Imperium Legal.

   YouTube
As Star Citizen's many gameplay mechanics come online I will be producing videos that feature the in-game use of those mechanics to help other Citizens more easily acclimatize themselves to the game. To subscribe to my YouTube channel you can click this link:

   Current Project(s)
I am developing my first YouTube series, Flight Line, in which we will be taking an in-depth look at the flyable ships of Star Citizen.
The show will feature a segment on the ship's specs and what they mean in-engine. We will also talk to community members in every episode about their thoughts on the "Ship of the Day" as well as a closing theory craft discussion on the future potential of the ship. While heavily informative I promise it will be fun and entertaining!

I have also started a Playlist of highlight videos from my recent Star Citizen PTU 2.0 streams titled Spaze Magiks.

   Twitch
It is important to me that I maintain a certain level of quality in both how entertaining and how informative every show can be. I currently stream Mon, Wed, Fri starting at 7pm PST / 3am GMT; Sat and Sun starting at 4pm PST / 12am GMT. Most shows focus on Star Citizen and its gameplay, but I occasionally do a Couple's Game Night with my wife (she likes the LEGO video games). To follow me on Twitch you can click this link:

Citizen Star News
As if all of this wasn't enough I've also recently accepted a position as the Managing Editor at Citizen Star News, the Star Citizen News source that focuses on you, the Community! I look forward to reporting to you both in the real world through our website, http://www.citizenstarnews.com/ and in the 'Verse once gameplay mechanics allow.

Equipment
Building and maintaining a custom gaming rig is costly and requires constant vigilance. As months pass newer and better technologies come out to render the current systems obsolete in some manner. It would be wonderful if I could take some of the strain of streaming off of the main gaming rig by having a second, dedicated, streaming rig to support the development of higher quality content in the long term.

Giveaways
At certain milestones for the Twitch channel I conduct giveaways to celebrate the Community and all it has done to get me to that point. I try to provide Star Citizen oriented prizes like Subscriber only Hangar Flair and the occasional new ship. But I have also been known to give away a Steam game from time to time! To enter into these contests all you have to do is be an active participant in my Twitch channel's chat, accruing UEC (my loyalty points) by playing games.

Patreon & Twitch Donations
I know some might wonder "What happens to my money once I give it to you?"
My answer is this:
All donations received directly through my Twitch channel are partially deposited into a savings account for new hardware the gaming rig may need. The rest is set aside as a donation towards Operation Supply Drop, http://www.operationsupplydrop.org/, a charity supplying Active Military with gaming goodies to boost morale.
All subscription funds collected through Patreon are invested back into the Twitch and YouTube channels by covering subscription costs on software and more. For a detailed list see the Milestone Goals listing to the left side of this screen.
NOTE: Keep in mind Patreon is just a way for you to show your appreciation and support for what I do.

It has been, and continues to be, an honor to count myself a Star Citizen among you all. I look forward to flying with you in Star Citizen skies!
