Who are you?
I am an American Catholic vlogger, writer, and critic of modernity. My goal is to provide a counter-cultural voice contrasting the perspectives that dominate the mainstream media and academia. My essay (both in written and video) tend to be in depth and attempt, as best I can, to get to the root causes of whatever issue is under discussion.
What do you do?
I produce essays about modern culture and solutions to the problems we face in the contemporary world. These are mostly video essays but sometimes include written material. I edit a blog called VIA OBSCURA that hosts a variety of writers who speak on this topic. My regular content includes a podcast (VIA OBSCURA RADIO) and a regular “Ask Me Anything” livestream (#DistAns” (Distributist Answers)) every alternating week. Video essays come out whenever I can manage them (usually between weekly and monthly). I also spend whatever other time I can spare (this isn’t my full-time job) trying to organize traditionalist and conservative fellow-travelers on the right.
What can you for me as a potential supporter?
Part of my mission is to support traditionalist and counter-progressive community, online and IRL. In addition to allowing me to keep the channel going (again, this channel is still a side-project), I provide my supporters with a link to a larger community of like-minded individuals who are interested in producing art, culture, and commentary from a counter-progressive and traditionalist perspective on the social media service Discord. Additional perks include access to my unlisted videos on my channel, priority access for asking questions on the #DistAns episodes, and video requests (depending on the levels). For those interested, I am also offering a coupon for merchandise on my teepublic store (pending working on the kinks on this one). I would like to see myself as a resource for the allies and friends that choose to support me in this endeavor.
