Who Am I?
I'm a writer and musician in Seattle. I write nerdy folk songs on ukulele that are usually funny but sometimes sad.

What Is This?
Unlike lump-sum crowdfunding you may have seen on Kickstarter or IndieGoGo, Patreon is ongoing support: rather than donating toward a specific project, you're giving me a little help every month. It's a struggle to make art and a living at the same time, and your support makes it a little easier! To show my appreciation, patrons receive certain bonuses and rewards, including exclusive downloads, behind the scenes blog posts, and more!

One Last Thing
Have a question? Wish there was a type of reward that I haven't offered yet? Let me know, and I'll see what I can do!
Tiers
Access That Shit
$1 or more per month
Ah, $1: the universally accepted standard amount for a single song. For this highly-affordable sum, you'll get just that: a special patron-only song download! Also includes access to all patron-only content, like demos and previews. Plus, I will think you are super cool and nice!
The Magic Number
$3 or more per month
The $3/month level gets you the patron-only song download, access to all patron-only posts (including demos and previews), AND I will tweet at you and tell you how great you are. That's a $50 value! (my time is worth a lot you guys seriously)
The Postman
$5 or more per month
At this very generous but still super-affordable level, I will send you a postcard every month. Real mail! A physical object! A human being will bring it to your house! Sometimes they'll be wearing a funny hat! Very exciting!
 

You'll also get:

- The patron-only song download

- And access to all patron-only posts

Any Requests?
$10 or more per month
For the amount of money you regularly find in the pockets of your winter coat when you pull it out of the closet in October, I will cover one (1) song of your choosing, which you will receive as an mp3 and may be posted as a video! 


You'll also get:
- The monthly postcard

- The patron-only song download

- And access to all patron-only posts.

Il Postino
$20 or more per month
Not only will you receive the postcard in the mail every month (physical item, brought by a human, funny hat, etc), you'll also receive two of my short stories in ebook form (digital item, brought by robots, no hat).


You'll also get:
- One cover request
- The patron-only song download

- And access to all patron-only posts

My Liege
$50 or more per month
Whoa. Are you independently wealthy? Did your mom invent White Out? You're taking this "patron of the arts" thing to a monarchical level, so you will receive a special crown in the mail decorated by me! 


You also get:
- The patron-only song download
- The monthly postcard
- One cover song request

- Access to patron-only posts
- AND a private concert anywhere within reasonable driving distance of Seattle! If you remain a patron at this level, you'll get another private concert once a year. Suitable for birthday parties, summer BBQs, public proposals, or bridge openings!

Goals
$109 of $150 per month
At $150 per month (and over), I will start putting 10% of what I earn back into the Patreon community, by supporting other artists!
