San Onofre’s Nuclear Crisis
DP & Assistant Editor || Since its construction in the late 1960s, San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS) has been the source of much controversy. Something about millions of pounds of apocalypse-inducing chemicals sitting next to the Pacific Ocean, a major highway, a fault line, Los Angeles to the north, and San Diego to the south hasn’t sat well with many SoCal residents and environmentalists. In 1977, over a thousand anti-nuclear protesters gathered to challenge the construction of units two and three – the generators known today for their unfortunate similarity to the female anatomy. In 1982, 15,000 people gathered in Laguna Niguel, a stone’s throw from the plant, to protest its existence. Suffice it to say, recent flare-ups concerning the decommissioning process, and specifically how Southern California Edison is storing spent nuclear fuel at SONGS, has been a problem for a generation with different window dressing. But, that doesn’t mean the public doesn’t have a right to be concerned.
DP || (Full film HERE) I traveled to El Salvador with Kassia Meador, Leah Dawson, and Lola Mignot, three outstanding women who are inspiring the next generation of ocean lovers through their alternative approach to both surfing and life. Each has developed a strong voice as a leader in surfing, and managed to do so on her own terms. They ride the boards they want, spearhead projects that speak to their passions, and keep their eyes peeled for interesting ways to engage that fascinating nexus where surfing and the rest of the world collide.
Bringing Science out of the lab
Over the years of working in science and education, we have been using a method where we teach science as a subject associated with facts, formulas, and figures. Unfortunately, this method is failing in creating science literacy.
Our aim is to teach science as a lifestyle, or a perspective, that employs critical thinking, inspires curiosity, and encourages people to explore the natural world. We're bringing science out of the lab and into the public eye through an adventure series called Access Chile.
Filming of the first three episodes for the series is complete, and we are now in the post production phase. Release date is tentatively beginning of April.

NEVER COMING HOME
Malibu in the Moonlight
DP & Editor || Last Friday evening, 4/27, was pretty special. After the sunset a few of us in the water, who were all strangers to one another before hand, got to share some perfect little waves under the light of the moon together.
