I want a better world. I create constantly. Most of my more recent art, music and game concepts center around the pursuit of a more just, connected, meaningful and kind world. That means both envisioning a better world and acknowledging the problems we have. It's not the kind of thing that often sells, but I believe it is one of the most important roles that the arts play. I also think many people want to support that goal. The nature of this work means that I don't want to benefit from it personally, other than the satisfaction of creating it, but I would love to build a base of supporters who want to promote art with a cause and would love for it to contribute to the causes it speaks to. For now and the forseeable future, any contributions to my Patreon will go directly into a charity fund that I will donate in batches of $50. I will post the donation information as I contribute!

At least for now, I'm only going to have one donation level. All patrons will get access to high res images of the visual art I post, high quality downloads of any music (320 kbps) and downloads or access for any games I create.

My concept of justice is deeply intersectional. I believe we need a society that supports the most vulnerable, builds in a sustainable way with a focus on human happiness and well being, maintains our world and habitat for both us and the beings we share the world with, and allows all humans to be their true selves while respecting the same in others. I have, and do volunteer for and contribute to many different causes. With each creative work posted, I'll also give some context as to the area of focus.
