Born in the Canadian Capital of Ottawa, now residing on the West-Coast, I am a fully-grown middle child with big dreams and no direction.
I have struggled to find purpose in my life and have spent a lot of time suppressing my creative side in the name of practicality. I have been constantly plagued with finding a direction for my future and consumed by questions of "but is this a career?" and "but can you really be successful at this?". This, among other things, caused a general discomfort for the first 20 years of my life. I felt a desire and need for a life that strays from the norm, but existed in an environment of people working so hard to achieve the life I can't be satisfied by and being forever pushed toward that life. Did that make sense? We're pushing forward anyways! And I do mean existed, because what I was doing wasn't living.
One thing about me, though, is I have a very delusional opinion that I can learn to do anything I want to do. This may not seem so delusional to some people, or may seem like a cliché, or may seem delusional because it's a cliché, but it works for me. The Internet is a beautiful (and sometimes scary) place on which I've learned the basics of coding, Illustrator, Photoshop, After Effects (basically the entirety of the Adobe Suite programs), I've connected with foreign humans over Twitch and Reddit, enjoyed countless hours of entertainment and overall vastly improved my digital art skills (though still I have a long way to go).
I've encountered personal successes and utter failure; I've plunged the depths of depression and managed to surface before drowning. Despite failure, despite depression, despite insecurity, there is nothing more rewarding than living a life in which you are honest with yourself and remind yourself that your thoughts and desires are valid. I've spent a lot of my life trying to invalidate the discomfort I felt and convince myself that the life I want is unattainable. Even if this Kickstarter fails, my passion is unwavering and I will find a way to finally make my dream a reality.
I don't know if this is much of a biography, but this is what's important to me. If you'd like to hear specifics or you want to hang out while I work on this project or want to creep the kind of person I am before pledging, feel free to check me out on Twitch and hang out with my little community. I'm a pretty open book and there's really nothing I won't talk about, so if you want to get to know me better that's the place to do it!
Thanks for reading, thanks for supporting, thanks for being a part of this incredible journey. I appreciate you.
