Hello everyone,

This is Young Grasshopper from the Cliffside Bunker in Toronto ON Canada, I’m a hardcore Axis & Allies enthusiast who loves to see new players entering the hobby. I make YouTube videos explaining how to play along with strategies, customizations, live play, and topical discussions about the game I love.

I'm also a born again bible believing Christian, saved by the grace of God in November of 2016. My wife who was also saved in 2017 is an incredibly loving, compassionate, and supportive woman. We work 8 hours per day all week, but we like to stay at home with our pets most evenings, and of course go to Church most Sundays.

I decided to start a Patreon page because I've realized that when I'm not thinking about God and family, I'm thinking about the Axis & Allies community. I think about making more customizations, more videos, more replies to emails and comments, but most of all... just making time for the friends and contacts I've already met playing this game.

I see an opportunity to make this my life passion in more ways than one, I've already built a respectfully sized YouTube community, I've spent the last 10 years on the Axis & Allies forums while becoming a liaison with axisandallies.org, and I've been hosting games and tournaments for some time... so why not Patreon?

My situation has recently become primed for this transition, I don't make a lot of income with my current employment, so not much would be needed in order for me to dedicate regular working hours to the Axis & Allies community. Also, being at home full time with my pets and shooting videos around my game tables would be a dream come true.     

I want to thank each and every patron for allowing me to do what I love, you all motivate and inspire me to make better videos and share my passion with you every day. Cheers... and may all you rolls be ones.

YG.
