About

Music reminds us of our own humanity, keeps us engaged and invested in the world and the people who live in it, and moves us through our feelings and our lives. I write about music because it makes my heart feel like a cozy animal. My most recent reviews, interviews, and essays can be found on MediumFrontrunner Magazine, and The Wild Honey Pie.

This Patreon page represents a shift in the role writing plays in my life. Rather than writing "when I have time" or "on the side", I am now writing more consistently, more seriously--or, as we writers say, "more better."

So far this shift has given me more agency in my daily life, created space to reflect deeply on my values, and allowed me to explore a less traditional work schedule that is healthier for my heart and mind.

This shift has also required a period of relative financial sacrifice as I put in time to improve my writing, including time during the week when I could be earning more money at an office job.

Your support through this Patreon page helps me in multiple tangible ways, including:

1) It empowers me to vary my writing environment. When there isn't a pandemic, I can leave my house and buy coffee and baked goods in locally owned writing environments where it would be rude not to.

2) It reminds me the struggle is worth it. Some days the faceless, massive cloud of capitalistic pressure and self-doubt that tells me to give up on pursuing a career in writing about music feels especially strong. On those days, your support tells me that I have a powerful network of thoughtful, passionate individuals who believe in me, and that the process and product of writing has inherent value.

3) It provides supplemental income as I continue to work on making long-term connections. During the journey towards developing stable, trusting relationships with paying publications, writers do not receive enough money to live on. Your support helps bolster my income during this phase of my work.

Thank you for everything!

Goals
36 of 50 patrons
When I reach a strong base of 50 patrons, I will be able to promote my work much more actively through paid social media ads and a Squarespace site.
