The Last Lecture.

by | Dec 19, 2009 | POLITICS

What would you do if you had one last lecture or piece of advice to give?

In 2007, Professor Randy Pausch learned he had terminal cancer and had less than 6 months to live. He proceeded to give an uplifting and fun presentation about achieving your childhood dreams and how to live your life the right way that has inspired millions the world over. He passed away a few months later, this being the last lecture he ever gave.

I usually don’t put stuff like this up on RVA (its an hour long) but I thought with the holidays and the weather outside maybe someone else will see this and appreciate it.

I created Richmond, Virginia’s culture publication RVA Magazine and brought the first Richmond Mural Project to town. Designed the first brand for the Richmond’s First Fridays Artwalk and promoted the citywide “RVA” brand before the city adopted it as the official moniker. I threw a bunch of parties. Printed a lot of magazines. Met so many fantastic people in the process. Professional work: www.majormajor.me
