A SQUARE MILE

A name for my lil’ video production company that specializes in geographic storytelling. We love history. We love to smash social science into physical science to get at the WHY of the WHERE. Currently featured on the site is a project we were hired to create for Caldera Arts organization.

 

THE IMMUNE SYSTEM

A multimedia network I founded, which is dedicated to the creative and academic pursuits of photography and visual storytelling. IMMUNEmedia.org connects student artists and journalists with professional photographers and multimedia producers.

 

SANCTUARY

A studio I built in Texas before moving to Portland. It’s functioned for years as a media/artist collective. There are a handful of things I love about Texas.  This is one of ‘em.
