What Happened

At the end of 2016, I was let go of my job as the contract with our client was not renewed. While my employer tried to find another position for me, my skills and qualifications did not match anything available at the time.

Since then, locating a new job in the tech field has been a little tougher than one would expect.

While I have been able to sustain myself by draining my savings account, I only have enough funds to get through the end of June.

What's Next

If I don't have enough funds by the middle of June, I will need to move back in with my parents which means moving back to Houston.

While moving home isn't the worst thing in the world, it does mean leaving behind the great people I've met in this town and who I consider all great friends.

To help stave this off for another month, I will be auctioning off a large number of my possessions. To help promote these auctions, I will also be livestreaming on Twitch the weekends of May 25 and Jun 1 from 3p/4p to 11p (CDT) each day Thursday through Sunday.

How Can I Help?

Buy Me

Wait, no... I mean, not me. My stuff. Buy my stuff!

During the livestream, new items will be posted for sale on eBay. Items including games, action figures, hardware, audio/video equipment, and more.

Over 100 items will be put up for auction during the event.

Tip Me

Not interested in bidding on anything but wouldn't mind tossing a buck or two my way? Don't want to stop ya from doing so!

You can tip me through Muxy.

Maybe I'm the perfect fit for your company. Why not take a peek at my past experience and skillset.

How Much Do You Need?

The cost of living in Austin can be just a tad bit high. I have done everything I can to cut out as many (if not all) unnecessary expenses as possible. However, my monthly bills still normally come out to about $1500/month minimum. This upcoming month is different as it also includes my yearly vehicle registration fees, adding another $80 to the month.

This brings the upcoming month's bills total to $1560 minimum.

*Electricity bill can vary wildly depending on weather. (ex. need for A/C or Heater)
