About Us


Steven Poe

Founder
Steven has been working in the visual arts since his high school years in Brazil. His popular time lapse video, Redwood, sought to inspire people to explore healing in nature, something he feels strongly about. His lifelong interest in mindfulness led him to create a Buddha Art Series in the mid 1990s which spread around the publishing world on popular mindfulness book covers. In 2005 Steven started development of an interactive 360 virtual tour media library of all makes and models of cars in North America and Europe. This VR content is used by millions of people to make car buying decisions every day. Mandala Health combines Steven's experience in the media business, virtual reality, photography, nature, and meditation.
