Joe Lambert celebrates his 31st year as a nonprofit executive director in 2014. A fixture in the San Francisco Bay Area arts and cultural community, his work took him from theater and performing arts to participatory media in 1994. That year, the Digital Storytelling Workshop, a training method in learning to tell short video stories, emerged out of Lambert's Life On The Water theater company, as it became the San Francisco Digital Media Center. In 1998, they moved to UC Berkeley as the Center for Digital Storytelling. CDS has since grown to a national organization with collaborating partners across the world in numerous fields including the environment, public health and social work, and community arts. Lambert was the principal author of the Digital Storytelling Cookbook, and the main textbook used by educators, Digital Storytelling: Capturing Lives, Creating Community and his newest book, Seven Stages: Story and the Human Experience.
