For all my patrons – new photography/prose for every single day. New poems, videos, and everything else as it's created! You see everything at least a day before it's posted publicly.

It's been over a decade creating in a vacuum, oscillating between work as a wedding photographer, gallery owner, street busker, cable installer, bottle/capsule filler for a supplement company, and anything else that's come my way. As an irrepressible (or perhaps entirely repressible) introvert in rural Canada, the struggle hinges on speaking up and making a connection – and when you're a shy kid, the world feels far off wherever you are. The support of people reaching out means everything, it's the brightest possible reason to keep going.

I've kept an uninterrupted daily journal of my photography, prose, poetry, and moving pictures since November 2007. It's all remembered: birth, death, and everything in between. These are my wanderings around the place that I call home; the ocean, forest, and abandoned places of Nova Scotia (and wherever else the road takes me). I've never missed a day, and I won't until the day I die. Want to go back to the very beginning? You can browse the entire archive here:

Patreon is my chance to take the edge off a little, reduce complication while reaching out to more people, pushing myself to create more daily, as much unrestrained expression as possible. I'm getting back in the rhythm of face-to-face connection, words to eyes to ears. Let's get growing.

Goals
$60 of $500 per month
I love what I do enough to do it every day, no matter what, but this will allow me to set aside all non-art pursuits, pouring myself completely into creating.

Even $1 a month is a huge help – it all adds up!
