TEDx Lehigh River 2015

Theme: Why Not?

TEDxLehighRiver 2015 will bring together a diverse group of speakers and audience members from the Lehigh Valley and beyond for a program of engaging and thought-provoking presentations and conversation reflecting the quotation from George Bernard Shaw: “You see things and say, Why? But I dream things that never were and say, WHY NOT?”

The event was held this past Saturday at Miller Symphony Hall in Allentown, PA to an audience in excess of a couple hundred people. I love the concept of TED talks. I have had the opportunity to photograph this local event since it started in 2013 and I was one of the original presenters also.

This year’s cast of presenters (see the images below) did not disappoint. They included:

Dr. Catherine Moore
English Teacher, English Literature and Theatre

George Hrab
Multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, producer, composer, and heliocentrist

Joyce Marin
Executive Director of Renew Lehigh Valley

Lauren Villaverde
Engineer and entrepreneur

Liz Jordon
Certified yoga instructor trained in Trauma Sensitive Yoga

Michael Brolly
Wood turning artist, teacher, environmentalist

TEDx 2014

Yesterday I had the pleasure to attend the 2nd annual TEDx Lehigh River presentation. TEDx Lehigh River is an independently organized TED event that brings together a diverse group of speakers and audience members to participate in a program of engaging and thought-provoking presentations and conversation. The first TEDx Lehigh River was held in April 2013 with the Allentown Symphony Association, Lehigh University, and PBS39 as the founding partners. I had the honor of being one of the speakers at last year’s event. This year’s speakers include Kevin Bahler, Rick Boulay, M.D., Robert M. Gordon, Zack Gray, Tim Lytle, Rebecca Einstein Schorr, Bryan Tuk, Katy C Worriloow. The following are a few snaps from the event.

Looking Thru the Lens: Vocation vs. Avocation

A few weeks ago I was invited to speak at TEDx. If you are not familar with TED’s mission it is“ideas worth spreading”. The TEDx program is designed to give communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level. If you are interested in learning about my photographic journey, please check out the link to the video, but be forewarned, it’s 18 minutes long: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VmzuwjH3iVA
