About me

As a scientific animator and illustrator, I've been immersed in the world of science education and publication for over a decade. I specialize in preproduction design including concept art, storyboarding, and user-centric design. Most recently, you'll notice me working with Digizyme Inc., and instructing at Clarafi.com.

This site showcases a variety of my work from the past several years, including print and electronic publications, animations for museums, and other media. When I'm not biomedically communicating, I tend to dabble in culinary graphics, photography, and game design.
