Bjorn Hansen ’15

Major: Economics
Hometown: Enterprise, Oregon

Can you tell us what you’re doing this summer? What are your basic duties as an intern?
This summer I’ll be completing a three-month internship with Porterhouse Media/PH Recordings, which is a full-service multimedia production company and record label started by DJ Steve Porter. My duties as an intern are audio production, video editing and production, and content management for social media and the company website.
How has Lewis & Clark supported you in the process of finding, securing, and funding your internship? 
I received a Fowler and Levin award, which was crucial in my ability to afford this unpaid, but exciting position.
How do you see this internship leading to a career in your chosen field and aiding in your overall career development?

This internship will be fantastic for my professional growth. The audio production facilities I’ve been using are great practice for a career in the media industry; the contacts from this internship will be useful for future networking; and the projects we tackle this summer will add significantly to my resume. It’s been less than three weeks and I’ve already assisted in the production of a spot for ESPN as well as numerous “sandbox” and label projects.

The Stephanie Fowler and Irving Levin Summer Internship Award was established by Stephanie Fowler MA ’97 and Irving Levin, generous donors committed to ensuring that Lewis & Clark students are able to have meaningful and enriching summer internship experiences.
