The Power of Snoqualmie Falls

for Puget Sound Energy and Sadis Filmworks

I researched and wrote the script for an hour-long DVD on the history of the Puget Sound Energy power station at Snoqualmie Falls. Nineteenth Century builder and entrepreneur Charles Hinckley Baker built an electricity generation station deep under the falls beginning in 1898. The original equipment is still there and still producing current for the Pacific Northwest. In addition to learning the story of Baker and his dream, I located historic photographs, and identified and recruited local historians who are interviewed in the film.

Director (and my co-writer) Steve Sadis and Editor Kyle Kangley of Sadis Filmworks were nominated for Emmys for their work.
