About

My name is Chris Gorges and both my wife and I have been involved in the sign language community for over 11 years and we are currently working as certified sign language interpreters and educators in California.

Over the years, I have had cherished the privilege of working as both an interpreter and an educator. I've enjoyed traveling as a public speaker, working with students at all grade levels, consulting with various public schools and colleges, and have had the honor of working alongside some incredible people along the way, both deaf and hearing. 

More recently, I have had the pleasure of helping thousands of people learn sign language online with easy to follow lessons, encouraging interviews, and tips on how to overcome the challenges that come with learning another language. 

I do this because I believe that everyone should have access to free quality educational videos that can enable them to learn sign language on their own terms. This is important because so many people find themselves in the need to learn sign language so they can communicate with those that are hard-of-hearing or deaf. 

For example, according to the National Institute on Deafness (NIDCD), as many as 3 in 1,000 children in the United States are born with hearing loss and 90% of these children are born to hearing parents. Many of these parents of course are already working full-time jobs and juggling multiple responsibilities. Having access to free educational content that they can use on their own time is vital in forming of a means of communication with their children.

Of course parents are not the only ones that find themselves in need of learning sign language. I work with teachers everyday that are struggling to learn sign for their deaf students that are a part of their classroom so they can have a direct line of communication with them. Other students as well take it upon themselves to learn sign language so they can communicate with their deaf peers. 

With your support I will be able to continue to make the high-quality educational content I produce available for free to anyone that needs them. Thank you so much for showing interest in the deaf community and both my wife and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your generosity. 
Goals
100% complete
It may go unnoticed, but all of my videos have closed captions for the deaf and hard of hearing. This is a long and tedious process which I do myself for every video.

For a 15 minute video, it can take me up to 2 hours to do the closed captions. Outsourcing this task would free me up so I could focus more on creating more great content for everyone.
