onBeing is a video project I made while I worked at The Washington Post. It's based on the simple notion that we should all get to know one another a little better. You'll find video portraits that introduce you to the musings, passions and quirks of all sorts of people. Every week I interviewed and put a spotlight on one new person and the onBeing community grew. I hope you enjoy meeting these folks and thanks for stopping by! -- Jenn

onBeing: Gio

When I interviewed Gio Escalante, it was only the second time I had met him. The first was at a small dinner party. He was 5 at the time and told a story that began, “This story is a little bit sad, a little bit scary, but mostly disturbing…” "Cool," I thought. "I’m in."
