I am responsible for planning and implementing new technology and systems throughout our organization, from databases to websites to production gear. I get to wear a lot of hats throughout the year, so it's pretty cool. I like long walks in the snow and my favorite ice cream is vanilla.

This process was first developed by the Center for Digital Storytelling in Berkeley, CA, and mixes together writing and reading workshops with digital video production training. The pieces created in the end stand by themselves as profoundly personal profiles about participants lives, and stand together as a portrait of senior life and experience throughout the city. read more
