This photograph depicts the union of sun and earth in life through photosynthesis. Facilitated by solar energy, algae build silica frustules which eventually sink to the seafloor, becoming diatomaceous earth, the chalky substance which traces out the vesica piscis shape found in this image.

One of my photographs was featured in this April 12, 2018 article in NASA’s Astrobiology Magazine: “Are viruses the new frontier for astrobiology?”
The photo originally appeared in the Portland State Vanguard, in this short article and interview with accompanying photos and video about the research of Prof. Ken Stedman.
For science geeks, this list of locations, events, and shopping ideas in Portland, Oregon is a great place to start celebrating the season of axial tilt in heliocentric style. Check out the full article with links, video, and a map of locations!
Here’s my story on GMO labeling for the Portland State Vanguard. I wanted to use more from all my interviewees, but that’s the way it goes. I wish I could do a whole documentary! I had to keep the focus tight and I wanted to get people to see that it’s a complex and human issue. That wasn’t easy, but I think I gave people some food for thought if not an in-depth view. The video attached to the article is a big step up in my production quality.
Last week I produced a video along with a couple of photos and a short news story for the Portland State Vanguard, available at this link. In this multimedia piece, local officers Katherine Flenniken, Moira Gion, and Becky Russo speak about the benefits that the group offers to students and the goals of their current fundraising efforts.
My first video for the Portland State Vanguard is now available online at this link. In the video, Dr. Jason Podrabsky, chair of the biology department, speaks about the benefits that the new Collaborative Life Sciences Building (CLSB) benefits students in the biology department. One of the photos in the slideshow at the top of the article was also taken by myself. Below are a couple more photos, unpublished elsewhere, that I took while at the new CLSB. The first is one showing the nearly-complete Tilikum Crossing bridge, which will open in 2015. Its West end is right next to the CLSB. Below that is a photograph that I took in one of the new chemistry teaching labs in the North part of the CLSB.
