Ralph has a deep voice, a huge smile, and a gentle spirit. He is a kind and gracious man who commands your attention. Ralph wanted love and acceptance throughout his childhood. Nobody ever wanted Ralph.

Ralph’s story begins at age two when a social worker took him and his brother Sam away from their parents. They stayed in the homes of various friends and temporary families until he was four.

These women have little hope for a viable future.

Getting Canon 5D Mark2 footage and separate audio into FCP to edit

(Occasionally I like to post something technical, especially when it will help our SalaamGarage community with their digital storytelling and save them all the research hours I just clocked….) I would imagine taming a tiger would be easier because I can easily see when the tiger is trying to chew my head off. This process has a lot of invisible irritations where I don’t know what is going on until much time and processing has been eaten up (versus a […]
