Science has always intrigued me. I am particularly fascinated by the complex web of pathways that drive life and by the techniques through which we have made these discoveries, and I am passionate about helping researchers and educators share their knowledge with others.
Good communication depends on a thorough understanding of the subject, so 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. In addition to my training in illustration and animation, I have also earned several writing awards; I believe that storytelling is incredibly important in this line of work.
I am currently based in Ottawa, Canada, but work with clients from all over the world. In my free time I love to relax with a novel, noodle on my violin or ukulele, and chase my two toddlers around.
