Norcal Senior Citizen Video Interviews 

With Ardan Michael Blum

My Goal

My goal is to capture and share your life memories in a dynamic, enduring high-quality video.

 

Together we will talk about your experiences, wisdom you have gained, and your perspective on life.

 

In a relaxed and informal ambiance, we will create a truly unique gift for your family and friends.

 

Our video will include excerpts from two or more 30-minute meetings in which you can read from your writings, share pictures of holidays, and talk freely about subjects important to you - family and friends, profession and hobbies, religion and ethics, challenges and hardships, art and culture, passions pursued and opportunities lost, lessons learned.

Above all I want you to be the author of your legacy - whatever the celebration, every occasion will be more special because of your loving presence, captured permanently in your own video/interview gift.

About Ardan Michael

Ardan Michael was born in Geneva, Switzerland. He received his B.A in Literature from Bennington College.

 

After college, he returned to his birthplace where he worked for over 22 years for several financial and community-based institutions in Search Engine Optimization. 

 

At the same time, Ardan Michael established a non-governmental organization called VIVRE AVEC LE 3EME AGE or "Living with the 3rd Age"; an innovative organization dedicated to the senior community across French speaking Switzerland.

This NGO, dedicated to helping senior citizens in Geneva, was to work with HP Europe, Microsoft Switzerland, Logitech, and IBM Switzerland to provide computers and software free of charge to senior citizen social clubs and nursing homes. 

 

This operation of providing access to the Web was achieved on a large scale across the French speaking part of Switzerland from 1999 to 2012.

 

Over this time, Ardan Michael trained and taught - free of charge - senior citizens how to use email, access the web and work computer programs.

 

In this time he learned the "art of communicating" and more importantly, he learned "the art of listening." Out of those two capacities was born a unique website of collected life stories in video, audio and text format which you can visit at narratives.chIn 2019, Ardan Michael started the current Norcal senior citizen project.
