THE IMMUNE SYSTEM

We Are ImmuneImmune Media is my media production company, which specializes in Advertorial Video and Documentary Shorts. We often partner with education organizations and government agencies to create media for clients while providing meaningful opportunities for young people to participate in the creative process.

Immunemedia DOT ORG is an online education platform and media network I developed dedicated to the creative and academic pursuits of the digital arts and visual communication. We host teaching websites, curate projects and interviews to connect student artists and journalists with professional photographers and video producers. This program has been honored with the College Board’s Award for Excellence & Innovation in the Arts and corollary grant.
 

SANCTUARY

There are a handful of things I love about Texas.  This is one of ’em—The studio I built there before moving to Portland in 2005. When I told friends and family I was buying a 100-year-old country church in Uptown Dallas, they thought I was crazy—but it has brought such satisfaction to preserve the oldest building in a neighborhood, hosts artists, and watch a community develop around it.
