[ crowdfunding ]
In 2012, I ran a successful crowdfunding campaign for my sci-fi short film, "C."
We were featured on io9 and Wired.com, and achieved 200% of our funding goal, raising $37,000 from over 1,000 individual backers.

From 2018-2020, I ran a 24/7 multiplayer server on the DCS flight simulator platform. It featured dozens of missions, professional voice-acting broadcast over the in-game radios, a live score-keeping website, and required copious amounts of visual design and historical research.
