Choose Your Nonprofits Wisely

People support nonprofits for many different reasons, but how many people expect anything from the nonprofits they support? I have noticed that a greater number of people give time and/or money to a nonprofit than those who expect those nonprofits to be good stewards of that time and money. All resources are limited, so maximizing the effect and impact that each one has upon the goals and objectives of the organization is important... or at least it should be.

If Michael gives $100 to an autism organization and they use it to plan an event designed to raise funds so they can plan another fundraiser... but they never break the cycle to provide a product or service of actual value to the autism community, is Michael really helping the community? Not at all. In fact, I'd say he is hurting it. That's $100 that could have gone to a different organization that provides free counseling to families and individuals affected by autism, but instead was lost in a perpetual fundraising cyclone of waste.

Too often we assume that nonprofit status is indicative of trustworthiness and credibility. We assume that by giving to an organization with the keyword of our cause, we have done our good deed. I say we should give a damn about how that money or how our time is spent. If an organization raises $60,000 and awards three $1,000 scholarships but provides no other assistance to the community it serves, is that really anything worth applauding? No. Supporting such an organization is nothing short of condoning its irresponsibility.

Nonprofit status is NOT indicative of goodwill. Before you donate, volunteer or support a nonprofit, please choose an organization that is responsible, professional and trustworthy. Choose an organization that is efficient and will effectively serve those whom you intend to help.

My Five Favorite Moments of 2011

Today is the last day of 2011 and like many bloggers, I am concluding the year with a recap of my favorite moments of 2011. It was my first year living in St. Louis since 1996, as well as the first year I was able to attend the HFA Symposium, an Inhibitor Summit and the NHF Annual Meeting all in the same year. My alma mater won the NIT Championship (basketball). A documentary I helped to produce made its debut on KPTS in May. My family descended upon Wichita to attend my graduation ceremony at Wichita State University (graduated in Dec, but the ceremony was in May). I started a long project of collecting the oral histories of many great men who served in the USMC Purple Foxes during the Vietnam War. The St. Louis Cardinals won the World Series. I won the championship in my fantasy baseball league and am playing in the championship game of two of my three fantasy football leagues (I finished third in my other one). Amber and I took the kids to see Monet's Water Lilies at the St. Louis Art Museum. The only thing that I wish didn't happen is the passing of my friend and professor, Les Anderson. I will miss him greatly.

My Five Favorite Moments of 2011

1. Wichita State University Commencement Ceremony
The reason this ranks as my favorite moment is because it was a celebration for my entire family. I worked hard to complete my degree, but I couldn't have done it without the support of my family. My parents worked hard to pay for the first few years of tuition after high school. They invested in me completing a degree and had to wait 18 years to see the fruit of their labor. It was important to me to show my appreciation by celebrating with them. Amber and the kids made many sacrifices throughout the last two years... financial, time spent together... and it was important to share the accomplishment with them. I hope our children will always remember the value we place on education and I pray they understand we did it all to give them a better future.

2. Documentary debut on KPTS
Although most of the work was actually completed in 2010, the documentary I helped to produce about the Symphony in the Flint Hills made its debut on KPTS in May. I wish I could have been in Wichita to see it broadcast, but I am still proud to have worked with Amy DeVault, Les Anderson, Steven Ludlow, Fletcher Powell and Corin Breña on this project. It is always nice to see others appreciate your creation.

3. Purple Foxes Reunion
At the end of September, I flew to Nevada to shoot interviews with Vietnam veterans from the USMC Purple Foxes, a helicopter squadron that my uncle served in during the war. My uncle was unable to attend due to unexpected health issues, but I went and did my best to honor him and his fellow Marines by collecting video of these guys telling their stories. I feel honored to have met and talked with these gentlemen. I left with a greater appreciation of their service, their honor, their courage and their commitment to the USMC, the United States and to each other. I look forward to seeing them again soon.

4. The National Hemophilia Foundation's 2011 Annual Meeting in Chicago
Most of my work this year has been committed to the hemophilia community. In the absence of a strong local community, Amber and I have relied upon the National Hemophilia Foundation and the friends we have made through social media, most of which live far away from us and one another. Many of us were finally able to connect at this year's Annual Meeting in Chicago. Not only did we attend educational events and expand our knowledge and understanding of bleeding disorders, but we also socialized and had fun hanging out together. It felt less like meeting online friends, and more like a family reunion (of a family that loves one another and enjoys one another). I feel more connected to those people now than ever before and I look forward to seeing them next year.

5. Monet's Water Lilies at the St. Louis Art Museum
It has been thirty years since the three panels of the Agapanthus Triptych have been assembled together, the way Monet intended for them to be viewed. Although one of the panels resides at the St. Louis Art Museum, the other two are located in Kansas City and Cleveland. Not wanting to wait another thirty years to see Monet's masterpiece, I took Amber and the kids to see it earlier this month. It is absolutely beautiful. I felt humbled before it. I loved it so much, I will be taking my great-aunt to see it next month before the exhibition closes.

Homes and cars can be bought and replaced, but experiences are paid for in time. Time cannot be bought or replaced. I am grateful for the thousands of memories 2011 has brought, which I now share with family and friends. I look forward to the great experiences 2012 has to offer. Happy New Year!!!

Social Media Revolution and the #NHF11 Army

Revolution. The word just sounds awesome. Much more inspiring than reform. No, I don't want to be a reformist. I want to be a revolutionary. Not just because it sounds better, but because revolution is abrupt and drastic change, while reform is a slow and gradual process. My children have hemophilia. I believe a cure is more than possible. It is likely. Why would I want the discovery of such to be a slow and gradual process? I want revolution. Social media revolution.

Last year I made a commitment to connect with others in the hemophilia community through social media... mainly Twitter. I have listened to and engaged with complete strangers across the globe. We have an affinity to one another because we are somehow affected by hemophilia, or some other bleeding disorder. For months, I have been anxiously awaiting the opportunity to meet many of my new friends at the National Hemophilia Foundation's 2011 Annual Meeting (#NHF11). As the date approached, I decided to organize a social event to facilitate such a meeting. I called it #SocialInfusion and promoted it through social media (Twitter, Facebook and Google+). We even found a great supporter to sponsor the event. Thanks Accurate Rx.

The significance of this event transcends relationships. For those of us who met face-to-face in a dark, loud pub in the River North neighborhood of Chicago, we expressed our willingness to act upon our beliefs, not just talk about them. The turnout was great, but it wasn't the quantity of people that made the event special. It was the quality. Passionate. Brilliant. Benevolent. Humble. Charismatic. Humorous. We were thinkers, but also doers. Everyone wanted to meet in real life and we acted upon our desires. If we were committed enough to do so prior to meeting face-to-face, how much more committed to a common purpose will we be now?

Many of us were tweeting information from various educational sessions at #NHF11 and many more were reading those tweets. We made a difference to those who were unable to travel to Chicago and attend themselves. Some even made a commitment to meet in DC for Washington Days in February. We're not simply saying hello on Twitter anymore. We are travelling hundreds of miles to meet in numbers and advocate for our community together.

One of the key revolutionaries who helped to connect the Twitter hemophilia community, Beth Marshall, could not make the trip to Chicago because she broke her knee. We truly missed her at #SocialInfusion. Although she wasn't with us in Chicago, she engaged with us through Twitter and once referred to us as the #NHF11 Army. I don't know about you, but I like to think of myself as a badass. A warrior. I fight for my children, for my friends and for the social media revolution which gives us the power to effect change. According to a Ning study, "it only takes 20 people to bring an online community to a significant level of activity and connectivity." The #NHF11 Army is already much stronger than that. Be a badass. Sign up and follow @NHF_Hemophilia or @marktkenny to get connected.

The Oral Histories of the Purple Foxes

I'm flying to Las Vegas in ten days to work on an incredible video project collecting the oral histories of U.S. Marine Corps Vietnam veterans from HMM-364, a helicopter squadron called the Purple Foxes. My uncle was a pilot in the squadron and he is coordinating the project. I am proud to be a part of it and am looking forward to meeting these gentlemen at their reunion in Mesquite.

I was a Navy man, so I expect to catch a lot of hell from these guys, but as I always tell them, they served in the Department of the Navy, not the Department of the Marine Corps. Of course, I'm just giving them hell. I certainly don't mean any disrespect to fellow service members, much less fellow veterans of a foreign war. It is my honor and privilege to use my knowledge and skills to help these men document their experiences. Several men have responded to my request for copies of personal footage that they may have recorded while in Vietnam. The footage has been digitized and I already have three DVDs of video to watch and log.

The approach this year is very relaxed as it is the first year. I'm using a DSLR with a Zoom H4n to capture video and audio. I am planning to shoot interviews in front of a green screen because we will be collecting over a period of several years and it provides flexibility in post-production for unifying them. The objective right now is to simply get the guys to tell their stories on video and collect it for archival purposes. They will be individually edited and posted online with the permission of the interviewee. From there we will improvise.

As a producer, this is a dream project. A little bit of travel to get out of the studio (or home), a great group of people to work with, interesting stories and easy post-production work. Since I'm not stringing all of these together into an overall story, editing will be quick and painless.
Be sure to check back for updates. I'll be posting more soon.

What I Did When My MacBook Pro Died

Last week, my old MacBook Pro stopped working. It wouldn't power up. After reading many threads, I decided to go ahead and schedule an appointment at the Genius Bar (the service desk at the Apple store). I took it in and after checking it out, the technician showed me a significant bow in the body (and the circuit board inside). The good news is that it is fixable. The bad news is that it will cost about $1200.

After digesting this information, I decided to check out to run my own diagnostics. As I said, it's an old model so the warranty is expired. With no success, I began cannibalizing the components before recycling. I perform backups regularly, so I wasn't stressed about data recovery, but my hard drive was still good so I purchased a portable hard drive enclosure from MicroCenter and gave it to my better half to use as an external drive. It works great and she loves it. I chose a small, stylish enclosure that she could carry in her purse, but you can get a basic one for as low as five dollars.

Once all my files had been transferred to my iMac, I began installing the apps I use for work (Adobe CS5, Apple's iWork, Final Cut...). Luckily, I maintain a folder with most of the DMG files, so installation was quick and painless. I did, however, have to call Adobe and request another activation credit, so I could register another license on my iMac. I did not have to do so for my Apple products. The only thing I had to invest much effort in was finding and replacing my extensions for Google Chrome. Now that I have done that, all of my extensions are bookmarked on Delicious to save me that heartache next time.

The point is... I learned a few things that may help you minimize stress and get back online more quickly:
  1. The Genius Bar cost me nothing and was worth the trip. Make the appointment.
  2. If the hard drive is good, you can buy an enclosure for less than $10 to recover data.
  3. It's very simple to remove your working components (hard drive, memory, processor...). Keep them, sell them, or reuse them.
  4. Recycling is easy through Apple or any of the solutions from the EPA site. Do it.
  5. Micro Center is where geeks go when they die.
I provided several links in this post to help you find the resources that helped me, but if you still have questions (not technical Qs, as I'm not an engineer) or suggestions, please leave them in a comment.

Why Nonprofits Need Social Media

As an advocate for the hemophilia community, I have a great appreciation for social media and what it can do for nonprofits. Let me begin by establishing that I am specifically talking about community-based nonprofits who exist for the purposes of educating and advocating on behalf of individuals and families affected by medical disorders.

The problem I see most within the hemophilia community is that local associations, and even national ones, seem to be disconnected from the communities they serve. They have newsletters and websites that connect us, but only the National Hemophilia Foundation and Hemophilia Society of Colorado seem to use social media strategy and planning to connect with their communities. Most others have merely created a Facebook page and/or Twitter account, but have no strategy or plan in place. Some have not even made it that far. Regardless of what stage each organization may be at, all must embrace social media if they plan to exist in five years.

Resources are limited, especially in today's weak economy. Many nonprofits are requesting funds from individuals and organizations who receive proposals and requests from several charities. Competition is fierce and those donating will have to make hard decisions. These decisions will likely include the following questions:

Why does this organization exist and who do they serve?

How do they serve this community and how will my funds serve an individual or family?

Are they making the most of each dollar or are they squandering them on unnecessary events?

In order to compete, nonprofits must be able to show that they know and understand the needs of their community, that they can provide products and services designed to help with those needs, and that they have a sustainable plan to do so.

I believe many nonprofits, including my local association, are disconnected from the communities they serve. They do not know or understand the needs of these communities. This is the foundation for failure. For example, if I need a helmet, but you make me a knee pad, that will not help me with what I need. Sure, I may be able to use a knee pad, but what I really need is a helmet. Nonprofits can easily use social media to listen to their communities, to discover what they need and respond with appropriate products and services. Please stop using outdated traditional models to communicate and interact with members.

Keeping Up With New Media

It's been much too long since I posted anything, but for the past two months I have been soaking up information from Social Media Week, SXSW and the Spring DEMO Conference. Communication is advancing at an incredible rate and it has sparked a burst of creativity in me. My mind has been generating many ideas and I have been busy trying to document them all.
In the midst of all this, I have updated a proposal to Gateway Hemophilia Association that would establish a social media strategy and plan for their organization. I am anxious to contribute to the advocacy and fundraising efforts of the hemophilia community, as well as to the support of its members. Next month, I will be attending the Hemophilia Federation of America Symposium in Louisville and I'm looking forward to meeting everyone I've been interacting with on Facebook and Twitter.

I Graduated. Now What?

It seems as if I have been going non-stop since 2008. Rather than taking a break the last two summers of my college career, I opted to take classes, including a 12-hour course load this past summer. I have no idea how I survived... especially with as little sleep as I had. I recall dreaming of the day when I wouldn't have a paper or project due. In mid-December that day came. It did not usher in the era of anti-stress that I had envisioned though. Rather, my papers and projects have merely been replaced with other to-do items.

Immediately after graduating I had a lot of packing to do. I moved back to St. Louis, Mo., at the end of December. I was excited to make it back for the holidays, but the lack of sleep and high levels of stress contributed to a poor immune system and I was sick over the holidays. I'm not sure I ever fully recovered, because the skies kept dumping more snow and I kept going outside to shovel it.

Anyway, I have been looking for a position in the hemophilia community, because I am passionate about helping the community. I am anxious to get to work and am beginning to get restless. I managed to keep busy with projects around the house, but as that list is diminishing, I am wondering: Now what?
I am planning to become ACE certified as a Video Specialist, studying more social media strategy and learning to develop iPhone and iPad apps.

Symphony in the Flint Hills Preview

Today I presented a brief preview of the Symphony in the Flint Hills documentary that I've been working on with Corin Breña, Steven Ludlow and Fletcher Powell. The project is a collection of several self-contained shorter pieces, but I shot an interview with the Executive Director, Emily Hunter, on Thursday that will help bring these pieces cohesiveness. Take a look at this preview. Thanks again to Les Anderson and Amy DeVault for giving us this amazing opportunity.

Hemophilia PSA: Dillinger

Last weekend I had the pleasure of working with my son, Dillinger, to produce a Public Service Announcement about hemophilia. It was a last-minute visit, so we didn't plan the PSA. It rained on Saturday, but the weather looked good Sunday, so we went to the park across the street to shoot Dillinger's stand-up shots. The footage of him self-infusing I shot in July while on vacation. I also used a photo from a year ago when we had to take Dillinger to the hospital for a bleed in his leg. Dillinger learned his script less than half an hour. He was great. We faced an unusual obstacle in the way of an air show. The only sunny day was the day of a huge air show, so jets were flying by every few minutes and we'd have to wait because it was very loud. Even so, it took us only 12 minutes to shoot the PSA. I am very pleased considering it was unplanned and we were limited by the weather and air show. Dillinger did a great job.

The Importance of Networking

Today I attended a meeting about the importance of networking. In fact, before the meeting, I went to lunch with a couple of producers I met through WSU and KPTS who I have learned a great deal about production from. It was nice to get together and pick their brains on motion graphics and fantasy football strategies.

Networking has been the key to my active involvement in production. It was persistence in asking for a job that landed me a part-time job at KPTS. It was my thirst for knowledge that opened doors for me to go into work and watch how they edited documentaries and promo spots. My desire to gain experience brought about invitations to work on several projects. Every one of them has taught me something and I am piecing it all together to make translating my ideas into something tangible much easier.

I had books and software, but it was the network of experienced professionals that truly launched my journey to becoming a professional producer. I love what I do and I have an insatiable desire to learn more, to have more tools with which to create.

Yesterday, I took a behind-the-scenes tour of Integrated Media Group in Wichita, Kansas. I saw a project they were working on in After Effects that looked incredible. I have no experience with motion graphic design, so I consulted two friends that do great work in this area. Not only did I get advice, but I spent a good portion of the afternoon looking over the shoulder of a friend as he demonstrated several ways to achieve my vision for logo animation in After Effects CS5. He also showed me a few other things that really sparked a fire in me to create stunning visuals in what would normally seem mundane projects.

Networking has helped me gain knowledge, experience, inspiration and friendship. I am grateful to all who have helped me and taken the time to share their knowledge and experience with me. If you are hesitant to speak with professionals in your field of work, I can reassure you that you have everything to gain and nothing to lose by putting yourself out there. As my old soccer coach used to say, "You can't score if you don't shoot."

Gear to Get You Started in Video Production

As a student of multimedia production, I am always looking for budget-friendly solutions for gear. Although I consider my gear affordable I realize that some of you may not, so I will try to provide options. This list provides the gear necessary to get you started in video production.
1.  Camera
I highly recommend the Canon T2i (550D) with EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens or, if you can afford the extra $200, the Canon T2i (550D) with EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Zoom Lens.  The zoom lens will provide greater flexibility and is sufficient for most projects.  I also suggest purchasing the following accessories:  a bag, an extra battery (LP-E8), a Sunpak 67mm CPL Filter and a 67mm UV Filter.  The pros of using this camera are quality and flexibility.  You can take still photos and shoot full HD video (1920x1080p) with the same camera.  The only considerations with shooting video with this are that you need a solution for capturing professional audio (I will discuss this later) and that you can only shoot about 12 minutes continuously before having to stop recording and starting a new clip.  This isn't a big deal for most projects.  If you are conducting a longer interview, then you simply do this while the interviewer stalls or is asking a question (it only takes a few seconds to stop and start again).  If this is too much for you, or you want an affordable solution for zoom and pan shots, check out this Sanyo that shoots Full 1080p.  It doesn't offer all the control that the T2i does, but the quality is great for the money.  I have one of each and use them both.
2.  Recording Media
I use a Class 10 SanDisk 8GB SDHC memory card in my camera.  I suggest having a back-up, as well. I can get about 20-minutes of 1920x1080p HD video on each card, so plan accordingly.  I transfer my footage to my laptop and then re-use the same card, but I would have more if I could afford it.  SanDisk also makes 16GB and 32GB cards.
3.  Tripod
If you will be using mostly set shots (little to no movement), you can get an inexpensive tripod.  For something better check out this Davis & Sanford tripod or if you have money to spare, the Manfrotto 504HD.
4.  Sound
After much research, I decided to try out the Zoom H4n with an Audio-Technica AT803 lavalier microphone (great for interviews) and a 10-ft. XLR cable (or longer if needed) to connect the microphone to the Zoom H4n.  If you don't already have a decent pair, get some headphones to monitor your recording levels on the Zoom.  To save time in post-production, you can connect your Zoom to the camera's audio input with a 3.5mm cable, so the audio from the Zoom is already synchronized with the video.  You may have to adjust your levels, then unplug the headphones to use the jack to plug into the camera.  If so, it's OK, you can still monitor levels visually on the Zoom. 
5.  Lighting
I try to use natural lighting as much as possible, but Supplies for Video Production Light Kits is a video that identifies a good DIY solution.  It is just one video in an educational series about lighting for video.  This DIY Kit includes: Clamp LightsBar TowelsDaylight BulbsIndoor Tungsten lights, ClothespinsStinger (short extension cord)Extension CordParchment Paper and Duffel Bag.
Also recommended in the Extras for Video Production Light Kits video are Gaffers tapeBlack Foil and Light Stands.  The video mentions also mentions a dimmer switch, but I don't see much use for that.
6.  Post-production
I have a MacBook Pro and use Final Cut Pro at work and Final Cut Express at home.  If you can afford the Pro, get it.  If not, Express does everything you will need to do for nearly every project.  If you have a PC, try Avid's Media Composer or Adobe's Premiere Pro CS5.  All are available for Mac, as well.  Moving beyond the basics, I encourage you to check out Adobe After Effects for motion graphics.  Creating motion graphics can add a lot to even the most basic videos.  Don't forget... students can usually get a discounted rate for all of this software.  After editing, I either export for the web or create a DVD in iDVD on my Mac.  I'm not familiar with the PC equivalent.
Preview Samples
My Videos page displays videos in which I have used this equipment (except for the tripods and DIY lighting - I use a cheap tripod but am fortunate enough to have access to professional lighting).  This will help you get an idea of what the camera quality is (cameras used are listed below video under "tags" if you click the title), as well as how the audio sounds with the AT803 and Zoom H4n.  

Busy, Busy, Busy

School, work, family... what else can I possibly have time for? Volunteering to shoot the Kansas Sports Hall of Fame Golf Tournament at Sand Creek Station in Newton, Kansas... that's what. Yes, I am very busy, but last friday I drove up to Newton to spend a day on the golf course. I had a great time and a great conversation with Ralph Terry, a pitcher from Larned that played for the NY Yankees and won two games, including a complete game, four-hitter, in Game 7 of the 1962 World Series to win the championship. Did I mention he was named MVP of the series? He has a great sense of humor and is extraordinarily nice. By the way, he became a professional golfer after baseball and last friday his team won the golf tournament I shot. Anyway, I have a lot of footage to watch and edit into a short piece for the Kansas Sports Hall of Fame Web site.
Today I met Craig Barton, the son of W. Frank Barton (as in the W. Frank Barton School of Business at WSU). I went to shoot a Signal Society spot for KPTS. Craig is a great guy and extremely down-to-earth. He had several autographed photos and magazine covers with famous golfers and U.S. presidents in his office, along with oil paintings of late-18th/early-19th century period scenes. He loves history and values the historical programming that KPTS offers. It was a great experience. I'm pretty sure that he is the wealthiest man I have ever shaken hands with.
Tomorrow I continue training. I am learning to direct the Sedgwick County Commission meetings for KPTS. I hope to direct this show and many others someday in the near future, so I am trying to learn as much as possible.
I also love spending time with my family. On Tuesday and Thursday evenings, my daughters have gymnastics classes on the opposite end of town. This will be the first saturday that my boys do not have soccer games, however I have a final exam at 8am, then I will be operating one of the cameras at the WSU baseball game that afternoon. On the weekends we all (Amber and I, two boys, two girls and one dog) spend time together, so I keep pretty busy trying to juggle all of these responsibilities.

CPL Filter Test

I saw a Circular polarizer (CPL) filter at Best Buy and decided to test it out. I was in class late, but got home and put it on my T2i and stepped outside to shoot. It was already really dark in the shadows, so I will have to test it again in the noonday sun. Anyway, all the exposure settings are listed in the video.

Creating an Online Portfolio

I chose to host my portfolio on a free blogging platform. I had a blog on Wordpress, but without your own server to host your files, you need to use the free Wordpress. I didn't like this, because they make you purchase many plug-ins to use the same features that you can get free with Blogger. I absolutely hated Tumblr. Not all Tumblr templates offer the basic Comments widget that allows users to comment on your posts. This annoys me as a user and it discourages interaction. I've seen blogs on Tumblr where people ask you what you think, but there is nowhere to tell them... no Comments section, no contact info.... Other popular platforms (I haven't tried) include LiveJournal and many of Six Apart's platforms (TypePad, Movable Type, Vox...).

The easy choice for me is Blogger. For beginners, they offer many drag-and-drop or click-to-add options for designing your layout and publishing your blog. For those who know HTML or CSS (and anyone can learn the basics easily), Blogger offers the ability to load your own XML document with your custom design, the ability to use one of many free templates online, or the option to just use one of their default templates. It is highly customizable in the simplest way and it is FREE.

I added a few features that I think are essential for any blog:
  1. A custom banner at the top. (Your template should tell you the size. ex: 860 x 130 px)
  2. Add This buttons (you can see them at the bottom of each post in my blog) make sharing info from your site as easy as the click of a button. You can customize the look, the list of sites you can share to (more than 200)...
  3. A Contact Me form allows readers to contact you/give you feedback/interact. You can either write your own JavaScript code or use an online service. I use WuFoo. It is free and allows you to customize your form (choose what fields to include, which are required and which are optional...) and embed it on a page on your portfolio site. This helps by keeping your email private. Otherwise spambots (evil programs that search the Inernet for email addresses, so they can sell it to all those annoying marketers that send spam) will find it on your site and you will begin getting loads of spam mail.
As you can see on this site, Blogger also allows for several pages. I have my pages listed just below my banner: Home, Bio, Resume, Videos, Design, and Contact Me. Name them so that they are self-explanatory.
