More About Sue

This page is my personal bulletin board. A place to share who I am, what I care about, what I am doing, and whom I am doing it with.

The Path

A glimpse into the early development of a concept documentary. This short clip produced by Jake Waxman subtly reveals the role and influence of Tae Kwon Do in my life. The informal clip was designed as a prototype of how one could design media that exposes intimate vulnerabilities while preserving a sense of privacy.

Training Triathlon

Over the last 3 years, motivated by Jake's completion of IMLP, and much to the shock of Aaron, I have fallen in love with long distance triathlon! Huge shoutout to my coach, Jeffrey Capobianco (Breakthrough Performance Coaching) who has gone above and beyond in terms of guidance, encouragement and friendship.

On the top of the list for favorite moments....

About to launch into Elevator at Snowbird...

Aaron headed for a day in Utah backcountry..

Nonprofit Work

For more than ten years I have served as the board chair of the Human Outreach Project (HOP), working with its founder and my good friend Dean Cardinale. HOP is a 501(c)(3) non-profit conceived on the premise that trekkers could – and should – give back to the communities in which they travel. HOP works in areas surrounding World Wide Trekking expedition sites in remote areas of Tanzania, Nepal and Peru. With a particular focus on youth, we partner with communities to identify local needs and co-create sustainable solutions to improve health and education. 

Dean Cardinale (President), Ray Massae and I review plans with Abel, our local construction engineer.

Ray Massae (Operations Manager for Tanzania) and I discuss repairs needed for the vehicle used to transport kids to school.

Piloting exercises that combine design thinking with geometry with the kids and correlating observations with school performance.

Working on developing interactive bilingual reading exercises with the kids - they provided lots of great feedback on prototypes!
