I'm Clint. For the past few years, my retirement has made it possible for me to become a volunteer teaching computer programming in a nearby middle school, a volunteer assistant with math, science, social studies, etc. at a couple of elementary schools; a WA State Park camp host; a webmaster for several non-profits and small entrepreneurs; a committee member for the Spokane Fall Folk Festival, St. Andrew's Society of the Inland Northwest, and Spokane Scottish Highland Games; a mentor for a robotics team; and a vocalist. Recently, I was also elected treasurer of the Spokane Highland Games Association. When I have time, I take computer and photography courses at the local community colleges.
There is so much more that I'd like to do. This website is my opportunity to share some of my experiences and creative endeavors with you. I hope you enjoy looking around.
"Remembering That I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything - all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart." -- Steve Jobs
