Check out this cool student-made video that shows our process from beginning to end. This was a 3 month project done by my Digital Design Lab students which culminated in a projected art piece on the side of a building in the Napa Lighted Art Festival. Gavin was our documentarian for the entire project. He's available for hire in Napa, wink, wink, nudge nudge.
Over the years I've volunteered in many different capacities. I've served on boards, cleaned kitty litter, restored bee boxes, taught children English, pulled weeds, and brought juice boxes and goldfish fo snacking toddlers. In all of those endeavors, I've become a better person because of my efforts. But, even to make this statement seems selfish. Mostly, it's just a nice thing to know that in some small way, that I've made the world a better place. Other things that are an extra-added benefit are that I gain experience, leadership skills, empathy and compassion for others, as well as meeting some really amazing people who I would not have ordinarily met. Being in service is a powerful thing, and I hope to do much more of that in the future.
