Anyone who's toured the NASA facilities across the country has seen how +NASA can stretch half a penny and do fantastic things for our planet. Could you imagine what they could do if they had one full penny?!
 
"NASA’s annual budget is half a penny on your tax dollar. For twice that—a penny on a dollar—we can transform the country" - Neil deGrasse Tyson

Tell Congress to put your tax dollars to better use by increasing NASA's budget.

Story
Tagline
TV/Film Producer, Social Media Advocate, Google Glass Explorer & Shorty Awards Finalist
Introduction
I co-produce a television show about the filmmaking industry in Florida on VISION/OrangeTV called, "Indie Cinema Showcase." I am a dedicated advocate for Florida's film community, a member of the Women in Film and Television Florida Board of Directors, a Social Media volunteer for Enzian Theater's monthly filmmaker event FilmSlam, and a voting member of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences' Suncoast Chapter. Having worked on a few independent film sets and in television (WEtv, Harpo Studios, Animal Planet), I am open to freelance work in entertainment based social media as well as film, television and photography opportunities.

I am a huge Social Media advocate. I guest blog and edit/produce multimedia content for the award-winning Central Florida events and cause blog, "Central Florida Top 5." In 2014, Orlando Business Journal recognized me as one of their Top Social Media Influencers. City of Orlando calls me their Glassbassador. I am a finalist for the 2014 Shorty Awards in the #KeepGoodGoing category! (Awards stream LIVE from New York on April 7th, 2014!) I also won the Woody Award for Volunteer of the Year from Universal Orlando Entertainment in 2008.

l started dabbling in Social Media and blogging back in 2000 and have never looked back! On Twitter I am @jenvargas. I also assist with: @RelayHuntersCrk, @OrlandoStrides, @EllensAngelWalk, @RelayLakeNona@ICSTVSHOW, @EnzianFilmSlam & @CentralFLTop5. I am also open to Social Media consulting opportunities outside of the film/tv production and entertainment worlds.

Volunteering is also a big part of my life, and I have very happily incorporated Google Glass into it. In fact, the sole basis for me even being a #GlassExplorer is credited to my volunteer efforts. As a result, I founded #Glass4good in 2013 to help amplify great causes and charities #throughglass. I am on the volunteer Social Media committees of two American Cancer Society events; Relay For Life of Hunter's Creek and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of Metro Orlando. I am also a Social Media volunteer for two Orlando based charities; Ellen's Walk with the Angels & Libby's Legacy.
