(ED note– Bio and Pic about 5yrs out of date)

I am Steve Bozzone, and I live in beautiful Portland, Oregon. I consider New York and Philadelphia my second homes.  I am a freelance media maker, transportation activist, and media junkie.  I cook a lot, grow vegetables, and raise chickens.  When I am fortunate to break away from the computer, I ride my bicycle all over the city, and sometimes to other cities.

Here’s what’s important to me:

  • Equity in all things: jobs, income, education, health, media, and the environment.
  • Spaces that incubate creativity and innovation, that suggest new answers to timeless problems.  Collaboration is essential.
  • Independence and transparency, whenever possible.
  • Love, kindness, and forgiveness.

I enjoy creating and recording music, mostly through Chief City Recordings. I have created music as part of Shout Magic, Grubstake, Cocoon and a variety of other bands.

Previously, I worked within communities in North Philly & Camden, training youth and adults in media-making and trying to learn as much as I can.  I especially enjoy music production and media literacy, but most of all I enjoy helping others be heard.  I created media with Indymedia, young journalists, and passionate community organizers.
