We have a huge program this month featuring three speakers. You don't want to miss this meeting. Our main speaker is Alex Vo:

Alex Vo is a Bay Area Producer and Creative Director for Elevative Media; a creative agency specializing in media marketing here in the Bay Area and Los Angeles. Graduating from film school in 2010, Alex began to find his passion for short form storytelling which he discovered to be a useful tool for telling the stories of Bay Area startups, Fortune 500 companies and non-profit organizations. Rooted in traditional cinematography and storytelling, Elevative Media focuses on creatively elevating their client’s company culture, branding and positioning through raw human emotions and captured reality.

Alex will be speaking about his time in Chinandega, Nicaragua where he has spent several years assisting with a missionary group called Amigos for Christ. When not digging in the trenches to provide running water to local villages, he is running around as a solo camera crew capturing the stories of those affected by impoverished conditions to further raise awareness of this mission and help raise funds to further develop this third world country.
