Like so many other people, the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have become a financial crisis for me. As a full-time freelancer, I've lost almost all of my work for the unknown future.
The best way to help me is to hire me to do what I do best. Mixing, composing and producing original music for film & TV, audio editing & cleaning, and mastering are my specialities, and I can perform these services from my home studio. I also have experience in running social media accounts with 15k followers, and I'm great at creating and optimizing websites and e-commerce operations. You can contact me using the form below.
You can also buy my album, Deviance, from my solo project Rumori, available as a digital download or as a CD a little further down the page.
If you'd like to support me otherwise, I've listed a bunch of fun rewards at different donation levels below while we're all stuck inside and going a little crazy. Some are goofy, some are food-related, and some are other professional skills I'm experienced in.
All of them are customizable - if you see something you'd like but want it to be a little different, use the contact form below to ask me about it.
Everything helps, and I appreciate any amount you're comfortable giving. I'm only trying to raise enough with this to cover rent & bills. Anything above that amount will be donated to a fund for musicians and freelancers in the same situation as me.
If you just want to donate without receiving a reward, I'm on Venmo as @soundsbyjason. Or use the contact form over there and we'll figure out another solution.
Thank you, truly. This time is hard for a lot of us right now, so if you're not in a place to donate, you're not alone! Feel free to reach out if you need a friendly voice. Hopefully these things can get us all feeling a little more connected again.
Minimum donation: $5. I will seriously consider the question, weigh the options, and come up with a solution to your question "What should I eat right now?" Whether that means ordering food, cooking from a certain set of ingredients, or something in-between - I will settle this age-old question for you and/or a loved one.
Minimum donation: $9. I make a video of me dancing and send it to you. It can be for a specific song that you request, a genre of music with a song of my selection - whatever you'd like. You can share the video, keep it as a secret forever, or anything in-between.
And I'm not gonna mess around. I'm gonna feel it.
Minimum donation: $15. I'll make you a playlist of music between 20-25 songs based on whatever criteria you request (within reason). Want something to keep you from going insane while you're quarantined? Or a playlist of exclusively African jazz without any Fela Kuti songs? Maybe you'd like something to accompany a specific meal or event? I gotchu.
Minimum donation: $35. I give you a cooking lesson via FaceTime or Skype. Now's a perfect time to expand your kitchen repertoire instead of bleeding your savings to Postmates. You choose from a bank of 10 rad meals I can cook, I walk you through each step and offer suggestions. If you're missing any ingredients, I'll offer ideas for substitutes.
All skill levels welcome! Lesson would take as long as it takes to prep and make dinner.
Minimum donation: $49. I will write you a bio, blurb, or description of someone or something. This can be great for artists who need someone to describe their work, cover letters, self-summaries, copy for your business or newsletter, anything you'd like. Want me to write a savage roast for your friend, or a glowing love letter to bae? Think of me like Joaquin Phoenix in the movie Her.
Base rate is for 2-3 paragraphs, approximately 250 words, and includes one round of editing. Bigger or smaller projects, or additional rounds of editing are available for a bigger or smaller donation - contact me at the above form if you have questions!
Minimum donation: $75. I play a show for you and anyone else you'd like via FaceTime or Skype. The show will feature material from my Rumori project.
The show will last between 45-60min, and I will interact with you and answer any questions. It'll truly be a lil intimate experience. Or, if you'd prefer, I can shut up and play the hits.
I'll cater it to your requests as much as possible, and I'm happy to take a crack at a cover if it's feasible!
Minimum donation: $99. I will make you an original song for any occasion. Base rate is for a song around 40-60 seconds long. Perfect for gifts to others, a gift for yourself, or to make a ridiculous request and see what I come up with.
You can ask for a specific genre, lyrical themes, context. I will do my best to work within any guidelines or requests you make.
Want a song that's shorter or longer? Great, we can adjust the donation amount accordingly. Contact me at the above form with any questions.
