YouTuber, Nerd, Sound Guy, Artist, Writer, Philosopher

After hours, I contemplate life, mix music, or make YouTube content about mental health.

I believe in the power of sharing my lived experience of psychosis to make videos which raise awareness, counter stigma, and ease those suffering in silence.

Creating strength in adversity. Thanks for your comments, my attentive audience.

nednednerB the Schizophrenic thanks you.

By day I test software and edit audio-video, and doing more audio and music software tutoring lately.

I wrote Insights Toward Sanity – The Art of Having Schizophrenia (whole pdf)

The Freshwater Stream

Since 2021, I have helped BC’s CodeBlue BC and Watershed Watch to produce a podcast about BC’s watersheds:
The Freshwater Stream!

In our 1st season, our host Danielle interviews community members around the province.

Water issues affect all of us.

Several guests have been indigenous, which is very meaningful because the First Nations are more connected to the waters here than any settlers, and there is lots to learn about.

There are teachings on knowledge and adaptation, on issues of ecological interdependence, social justice, and calls for ceremony and respect toward many beings.

Education and Work

Graduating from VIU in 2009, I studied Philosophy and English. I enjoyed many electives in the Linguistics and Music Departments, too.

At that time, I authored a single, peer reviewed scholarly article, which my VIU facilitator encouraged:

Spinoza, Deep Ecology, and Human Diversity — Schizophrenics and Others Who Could Heal the Earth If Society Realized Eco-Literacy.

At PAVI (Pacific Audio Visual Institute), in 2010 I earned a diploma: audio engineering and music production. I’ve enjoyed editing and mixing since then.

Listen to nerBeater music in the genres of Hard Ambient / EDM / Trip Hop:
On YouTube MusicSpotifyApple MusicBandcamp, and elsewhere.


YouTube gave me some transferable skills.
nednednerB the Schizophrenic took time, effort, and I keep learning.
