This week was pretty exciting in Community Service as I got to run around taking photos and creating a wireframe a new website for LIGA. 

My photography is improving(?).  I think.  Hope.  Not sure.  Argh... wish me luck.

Donate Now

If you'd like to support my community service work please donate now to my Fresno Fitness LLC account on PayPal.  

Your donation will fund community service projects in the Fresno Area.

In community service and community service projects you have to do what needs to get done and document the organizations activities.  One of the best ways to do it... is with PHOTOS and videos. My first photos were on OnePlus 3T in 2013... then a Note 7 in 2015... and finally a Nikon D7200 in 2017.  In 2017... disaster struck and my home was broken into and all my gear was stolen.  In 2018 I began to rebuild and repurchase some of my photography equipment.

Help our Fresno State Bulldogs Take a Bit out of Hunger.

One of the best things at Fresno State is our focus on student's education and their physical needs.  The campus understands that if a student is only focuses on where their next meal is coming from... they are unlikely to be able to study, learn, and reach their full potential.

Double the impact on student success!

For the past two years, your support has made March Match Up a success! Thank you.

I joined Toastmaster's in 2016 and began serving as their social media guy, or Public Relations Officer.

I selected Clovis Speech Masters in part because it had several colleagues of mine from Fresno State.  I stayed because I enjoy the conversations, listening to a public speech, watching the members and myself improve over time.
