Antionette Clark - Board Member / Media


television I began my career working as an artist for a small television station. using
ink pens, colored pencils, markers comps, and airbrushes to create still art for the
newscasts and commercials.  Then in the early 80's a new, innovative computer was
introduced to the television industry to create animation and I became a Broadcast
Designer using that computer for several years.  While working in Miami, a group of
us started using the Apple Macintosh computer for animation before there was any
software or hardware developed.
NBC,as and After winning several awards, we were recognized as some of the first
designers to use a desktop computer for broadcast purposes.  As I moved through
the industry from the network affiliates of ABC, CBS, and NBC, I was offered
positions and or recruited to be on the ground floor of larger networks such as Fox,
The Discovery Channel, The Weather Channel and Starz.  My career flourished; I
could pick and choose where I wanted to work, I won Emmy and Telly awards, but
there always seemed to be something missing.  I worked along side many talented
and brilliant producers, writers and reporters as we promoted news and
entertainment.
 
Finally,My life was defined by the Challenger disaster, the OJ Simpson car chase, the
Gulf War and countless movies, both good and bad.  The industry was now governed
by attorneys, marketing experts and world disasters.  Finally, after working for the
largest network in the world, the Defense Department, I sold everything and moved
to Hawaii with my 16 year old son.  I worked for room and board helping to put
together a social network for Christians.  It was in Hawaii, I saw the devastating
effects of homelessness and the obvious non representation of the growing
disadvantaged population by the media.  There is a large segment of the
population who's concerns surround food and shelter and not who is the latest
winner on American Idol.  I became an AmeriCorps VISTA volunteer, which is the a
for volunteer for national version of the Peace Corps.  I took a pledge of poverty for
one year and offered my expertise to a government non-profit organization that serves
the low income population in California.
After my service I was asked to join the agency as a full time employee and I now
work with a group of dedicated individuals who have spent their lives developing
successful programs to help the homeless and low income people in their community.

wheat, alfalfa, and rice. The total acreage of the farm is just over 1,600. Ryan is also

in charge of the farm’s aquaculture complex, where Ryan is currently growing close

to 100,000 channel catfish. Of those fish 30,000 are of market size today. In his four

years farming the greatest learning experience is the fact that farming is more than

just planting a seed in the ground and watching it grow, or hatching some fish and

watching them grow.  Farming is a continual watch with the eye and a major science;

also, the grace of the Lord plays a key role. Farming takes a lot of hard work and

determination to be successful, something that Ryan is passionate about and thrives on.

The aquaculture complex is also home of The Watersports Farm; a 26 acre

private water-ski and wakeboard lake where Ryan gives people of all levels lessons

on waterskiing and wakeboarding. Ryan has skied all over the United States, and in

2002 skied on the (PWT) Pro Water-ski Tour.

Ryan was baptized a new believer in 2005, and is amazed at how his life has

changed. “I’m in amazement of how we live in darkness, before we see the light. Now life makes sense, God is real and he’s here for everyone who asks him

into their lives.

” Ryan is passionate about speaking the word of God. “We are the ones to

prepare our youth for something the world has never seen. We must stand

unashamed of the gospel of Christ, and share the good news to people with love and boldness.
