Promoting the responsible use of digital media to educate, motivate, and inspire.
 

Scion Media was founded in 2023 by Sam Ettaro, a retired digital media arts teacher and life-long digital media creator.  Ettaro has had a long career as entrepreneur, educator, and through it all he saw a consistent disconnect between those who want to create media, and those who need the services of the creators.  Often times, businesses are hesitant to hire or contract for media services as they feel intimidated by what they see as the complexity of the tasks and systems involved.  This issue is especially prevalent within the nonprofit and small business communities. The mission of Scion Media is focused on building connections and connecting budding creative producers with the nonprofit community that needs them. Our organization is rooted in the Biblical principles that drive Ettaro's businesses, and guide his family every day.

Our Faith Is Central To Our Service

"Engaging in business without faith is like driving without your headlights on.  You may get where you want to go, you may not.  Jesus Christ is the light of our world, and our guiding light for Scion Media. His Gospel is the foundation of mission.  We believe it's our duty to use the gifts we've been given to serve others, and teach them how to do the same.  This is our mission, and we're keeping the lights on!"
