Cooking Matters

In-Person Training: Cooking Matters

I volunteered as a Chef at Cooking Matters, where I taught low-income women to create healthy low-cost meals for their families.

While we were preparing a recipe for fried rice, I facilitated a salt tasting.  The class discussed the effects of sodium on the diet. In this photo we are tasting a few different kinds of salt, and discussing the mineral content.



YouTube Certified

When I joined the YouTube team, we had eight weeks to complete production  on eighty-five instructional videos.  We traveled to Google Studios all over California to record interviews and presentations.  I worked with talented Subject Matter Experts who provided the amazing performances that made up our videos.  We then edited the videos and created the YouTube Certified Course on our Learning Management System.  We launched our course and our exam on time, to rave reviews.

Here is what the Project Manager had to say about my work:

Lee was my main lead for anything Production. Although, His personality was a great fit not just for YouTube, but also for the challenges of the project. He is extremely reliable, trustworthy, adapts well to team environments and can get others to focus and work. During his tenure, we were able to process 85 videos in 8 weeks with a 75-80% cost reduction. During times of uncertainty, he was able to manage his emotions to motivate not just our full time team, but also the contractors at the studio which at one time were 15 editors/animators/etc. I would highly recommend Lee to work on projects that require problem solving, production and contain high levels of ambiguity.

The One-Moment Meditation

Can you see yourself using this technique on a daily basis?



One does not accumulate but eliminate. It is not daily increase but daily decrease. The height of cultivation always runs to simplicity.
