Arcade by Autodesk Portland Employees

I'm in the final edit stage of a video of interviews of some fellow Autodesk Portland office employees for something fun and unique.

The high school students tell me I help, but I'm not sure they are getting the better end of this volunteering deal as I get so much from being continually inspired by these students I could never repay that debt.

There is great article just published on possible ways LA could lead the way in hosting the 2028 Olympics and provide the model for future host cities to have less negative impact short and long term.
