I am expanding my photography portfolio, working on independent projects with family and friends. Since I am still trying to get a hang of photography, I am practicing as much as I can with my Canon T4i. I hope to get a fish eye lens and further develop creative photography soon! Meanwhile, visit my flickr and check out my past project. Follow me on flickr, twitter, and other social media channels for more content!

Functional Fashion

Alva Gardner, my friend, is a recent UC Berkeley graduate starting the trend of Functional Fashion. If you don’t know what Functional Fashion is, then you’ll learn something new here. Functional Fashion is where trendy clothing items serve a variety of purposes beyond their style, facilitating daily tasks.

As a person growing up with a disability, Alva Gardner finds that most fashion doesn’t cater to people with disabilities. When you are in a wheelchair, you can’t simply access your pockets easily, since most pants have pockets by the hip. But, that is only one of the many fashion issues people with disabilities struggle with. The list goes on.  After struggling to with mainstream fashion her whole life, Alva has collaborated alongside the UC Berkeley Theater design team to design templates for her ideas “geared towards people with disabilities.”

  • Accessible Pants — Pants with pockets on the side of the leg, allowing quick access to items.
  • The Poncho Blanket — When it rains, most wheelchair users can’t simply throw on a raincoat. The Poncho Blanket protects their wheelchair, while keeping them warm.
  • Alva’s Coat – When you are in a wheelchair, long coats just feel uncomfortable, since the backside gathers on the chair. Alva came up with the idea of shortening the backside of the coat for seating comfort and added hooks to ease the process of putting the coat on.

Alva seeks to empower individuals with disabilities, allowing them to be more independent through Functional Fashion. In the future, Alva seeks to start a full fashion line to develop her accessible fashion designs.”My goal [is] to merge function with fashion, and make a line of clothing that people with disabilities could feel comfortable in and maintain their independence. As a woman growing up with a disability, I feel that one’s fashion style and how they present themselves is a huge part of their sense of self.”

Recently, Alva Gardner crowd funded $7,000 on Indiegogo to start her fashion line with prototypes. While she is still in the preliminary stages of her Functional Fashion line, Alva has already made a strong impact in the local community. You’ll be hearing a lot more about Alva Garner soon!

Alva and I collaborated to produce a promotional video for her Functional Fashion line, which you can see here. Please share and help support Alva’s goal!

Learnist – Content Production

wenn3292224While working with Learnist, an educational startup, I created and curated content for their website. Aside from social media and marketing tasks, we researched and created content for Learnist using our own Learnist profiles.

During my time, we expanded our educational content to popular culture, which led me to make a Learnboard on Wes Craven. This board is my most popular of my content produced at Learnist, and the best example of my content production during my time there. Click here to see my Wes Craven Learnboard

Video Resume

I’m Steve Segovia, a recent UC Berkeley graduate in American Studies with a focus in Film and Media. I studied both the practice and theory of film, working on short film projects as well as researching the effects of representation in the media. Through my research, I wrote a senior thesis on the Representation of the Latino American Male and Masculinity in Film.

Previously, I worked in CalTV as an on-camera journalist, where I collaborated with other student to produce short journalism videos. More recently, I have freelanced and worked on various independent projects.

Right now, I’m looking to get hands on experience in a position where I can achieve my long-term goals and see myself in 5 years in a media related field, whether it’s hands on film making or media production and development.
