An artist and creator of all things strange or otherwise silly.

Above all else, though, I've always loved creating characters, worlds and most notably indie games. Putting all of these together has always been a passion of mine, to the point where I've spent more years than I'd care to admit improving my abilities and knowledge in these fields - doing everything I can to make the end product as worthwhile and solid as possible. If you're looking to learn more about what I've been working on, feel free to check out the links to my social media above.

So... Why Support Me?
Simply put, indie development and art in general is an expensive, time-consuming process. This may be a little surprising, but believe me when I say that it goes way further than it might look at first glance. Of course, there are less expensive ways to develop games and produce art these days, but I've never felt right taking shortcuts where it could harm the final product. Games and creativity deserve all the love and care that can be afforded, and regardless of what you contribute, it will help me to continue pushing forward - so thank you! If not for your wonderful support, none of this would even be possible!

But Kindness Deserves Kindness In Turn
On top of the benefits offered in the tiers here on Patreon, I plan to take full advantage of the funds I receive and give back to you, the community, in the form of new opportunities with my projects - including input on the game's design, the ability to vote on features and certain other aspects to the game's final outcome, as well as the chance to design your own content! On top of this, you'll gain the right to suggest and vote on what new artistic content I produce, what sort of challenges I undertake and access to exclusive material that I won't post anywhere else for weeks, months, or at all.

For higher-tier supporters, you'll also receive very special shout-outs on my future content, your name featured in the game's final credits, as well as something unique for those who truly go above and beyond.
