n a t h a n a e l f . t r i m b o l i is a multi-talented artist, musician and videographer. Trimboli, a former Chief Designer with PBS, has made his mark by examining life through the lens of his community. As a professional editor, the South Bend Regional Museum of Art hired him to teach classes on expanding abstract thought through video. His art installations have been incorporated as set-design for fashion shows as well as traditionally viewed multi-media graphic documentary, and are always backed by community causes. Recently Nate has landed in Oakland, a new community with new artistic challenges and a multitude of exciting possibilities. Nate is currently filming a documentary for the Community Coalition for Haiti.
