Bio of Founder/Executive Director Sebastian Rogers

PSX_20170403_221840.jpg

Sebastian Rogers was born in Norfolk, England to an immigrant mother from India and an English father. Raised in a cross-cultural home in the small rural market town of Diss, he left home to pursue a career in music at age 16 - ending up in Los Angeles by the time he was 23. After work as a producer and songwriter with platinum-selling artists, and contracts as a performing artist with London Records, Dreamworks and Interscope, Rogers was drawn to Portland, Oregon by the homespun music scene and his disillusionment with the music industry. A spiritual transformation ultimately led him into full-time Christian ministry, where his experience with media proved invaluable. Rogers developed his film making skills while Director of Communications at Imago Dei Community, before shifting his focus entirely to running the non-profit media company Peripheral Vision PDX, which he founded to provide films and media training to under-served communities, organizations and ministries.
