Stephani Gordon is a videographer and editor at Oregon Public Broadcasting, filming for Field Guide and other science and environment stories. Before becoming a filmmaker Stephani spent twelve years as a marine field biologist, an ideal training ground for the challenges of filming for Oregon Field Guide.
Before joining the team at OPB, she filmed for National Geographic, NOAA, Conservation International, National Park Service, on United Nations grants, and for many other organizations. Her favorite projects involve filming with field researchers in the heart of wild and remote places to share their stories with a wider audience.
Stephani moved to Portland by way of Montana and Hawaii, exploring the greater world’s oceans and remote coasts before that. Along the way, she’s collected an MFA (Master of Fine Art) in Science and Natural History Filmmaking from Montana State University, a Master of Biology from Humboldt State University, and a Bachelor of Science from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
