Inspiration, creativity and collaboration. At Statehood Media, we set the bar high and strive to exceed it. We’re adventurers, writers and artists for whom discovery is boundless. Every story we tell, brings our audience closer to a subject, to a place and to each other. We know these stories because we live them.
Kevin Max is the founder and chief content officer for Statehood Media (1859 Oregon’s Magazine, 1889 Washington’s Magazine). He has covered IPOs for the New York Times/TheStreet.com, traded S&P options at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and written speeches for top figures in financial services and politics. Now he favors IPAs over IPOs.
A graduate of Northwestern’s Medill School of Journalism and the University of Notre Dame, Kevin now lives in Bend, Oregon.
I lead the creative department at Statehood Media, handling design, art direction and photography for our publications. I also coordinate ads for our print products.
I am a native Montanan but have quickly learned to love the Pacific Northwest. I previously designed and edited for the Orange County Register, The Bulletin newspaper in Bend and Mamalode magazine before joining the Statehood team in 2017.
I love bringing content to life through creativity. Other interests include coffee, mountains and well-placed commas.

Joni Kabana is a visual artist and writer who is most happy when she is deep into a world which is unfamiliar to her. She can be found at home or in remote villages across the globe working on magazine, NGO, corporate, advertisement and personal projects trying to stretch her beliefs and imagination as far as they will go.
Hi I’m Jenny. I’m a native Oregonian and Portlander. I’ve raised three boys (now adults), and love spending time with my “current children,” my terriers, Bonnibelle and William Wallace. I’m passionate about my flower garden, and I love getting out into nature and experiencing the Northwest on weekend getaways, then relaxing on my porch with a glass of pinot noir (of course Washington and Oregon are the best) to watch the sunset.
I’m an expert in designing ad packages for destinations, wineries and restaurants. I’ve been all over the Northwest, and I always find myself in small towns that seem almost undiscovered. As the Director of Sales at Statehood Media, my role is to introduce restaurants, wineries, and destinations to a statewide audience. If you live in the Northwest you know that local means statewide, and that’s a great description of our readers. All the wonderful places I visit as I criss-cross Oregon and Washington deserve to be discovered! That’s part of our mission at Statehood Media, and it’s my personal mission as Director of Sales. Let’s get the word out for your business! Our ads are worth discovering as well, we have entry level prices suitable for any business, and if you want to focus on state residents, there’s really no better value than Statehood. Email me any time, I’d love to work with you!
