Science has always intrigued me: I am fascinated by the complex web of pathways that drive life and by the techniques through which we have made these discoveries. I am thrilled to be making a living helping researchers and educators share their knowledge with others.
As a certified medical illustrator (CMI), I know that good communication depends on a thorough understanding of the subject. I consistently rely on the strong science fundamentals and research skills that I developed throughout my BSc, MSc, and years of molecular biology lab work. While trained in illustration and animation, I have also earned several writing awards, and I believe that storytelling is an incredibly important aspect of my work.
When I'm not sitting in front of a computer, I love reading, travelling, playing ultimate frisbee, and practising my violin for the North York Concert Orchestra.
