I make movies, produce tv, converse on the social medias, blog and explore life with Google Glass!
Introduction
Greetings! I'm Jen, a Multimedia Producer in Central Florida.

I am a dedicated advocate for Florida's film, entertainment and digital media communities and actively work in Florida's film and television industries. I sit on Women in Film and Television Florida's Board of Directors and on several planning committees for Film Florida and a voting member of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences' Suncoast Chapter. In the recent past, I co-produced a television show about the filmmaking industry in Florida on VISION/OrangeTV called, "Indie Cinema Showcase." Updated credits may be found on my IMDb page.

Some notable things about me:


l started dabbling in Social Media and blogging back in 1999 and still learn something new everyday! On Twitter I am @jenvargas. I also assist with: @RelayHuntersCrk, @OrlandoStrides, @EllensAngelWalk, @RelayLakeNona@ICSTVSHOW, @EnzianFilmSlam@WIFTFL@CentralFLTop5. I am also open to Social Media consulting opportunities outside of the film/tv production and entertainment worlds.

Volunteering is a big part of my life, and over two years ago I very happily incorporated Google Glass into it. In fact, the sole basis for me even being a #GlassExplorer is credited to my volunteer efforts. I founded #Glass4good in 2013 as a result to help amplify and connect great causes and charities #throughglass. In 2014, #Glass4good (now #Wearables4good) was one of the sponsors for the 2014 Schwartz Tech Awards!

I sit 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 a Social Media volunteer for two Orlando based charities; Ellen's Walk with the Angels & Libby's Legacy. I also volunteer my time to Enzian Theater's monthly filmmaker event FilmSlam
Bragging rights
I gave Thomas Dolby his first Google Glass demonstration! Did I blind HIM with science? Maybe!

There was a bright event seen across several Southeast U.S. states last night at 12:29:30 a.m. CDT (1:29:30 a.m. EDT). Based on the data we currently have, this object was not a meteor or fireball, but rather a possible reentry of space debris. http://go.nasa.gov/1R0nySt

I remember this happening in April or May and there were actually a couple cars stuck in it when they conked out. Also, we are practically neighbors! (at least until July 30th, when we move to Clermont).
