Rodrigo Santos for Community College Board

New Site: Santos 2012 Website Launch!

After weeks of planning, I am super duper excited to show off the Rodrigo Santos for Community College Board website. I met Rodrigo back in January and I was instantly a fan of his high energy and excitement to help students success. His firm Santos and Urrutia was buzzing with young talents from public universities. I could tell from day one, that he is a true neighborhood leader in every sense: from donating technology equipment to local nonprofits in the mission to dedicating his skills as a structural engineers in the East side of town. Also, did I mention the man runs marathons? Not just one or two a year, but tons. I finished the Kaiser Permanente Half Marathon this past February 5th in 1hr 40mins and I was burnt. How the man can do marathons is beyond me.

Back to the website. Today, is the big day. How you enjoy.


Pro bono feels good

It’s the year of the dragon. I’m very fortunate to be born on the year of the dragon.

Dragon Career: “Your enterprising personality and sheer enthusiasm are perfect for the year ahead. It’s your time to shine! Important changes could take place with work — a promotion, a shift in responsibilities or even an entirely new job.” according to Yahoo Horoscope.

To start my year off right, I’m doing pro bono work. Today, I present to you the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) at SFSU website. My dear friend Jasmine Williams approached me a about the website over Christmas dinner and I agreed to help her revitalize her chapter with a complete overhaul. Her organization had plenty of brawn, but no creative designers. She spoke to me about the mission of NSBE and how the org helps promote diversity in engineering. So for the next two weeks, I dug deeper into the org, reading their convention program, magazines, online publications, and browsed other NSBE websites. It occurred to me that the org can be summed up in by the three key areas of focus: achieve, lead and serve.

I give you, NSBE SFSU:
