My passion has always been science, especially botany, ecology, and biochemistry, with an underlying love of art and illustration. I have undergrad degrees in Biochemistry and Environmental Science and a doctorate in Biology, specializing in Plant Ecophysiology. 

After a postdoc at the Institute of Ecosystem Studies, I changed directions and focused on becoming a freelance scientific illustrator and animator. Now, I illustrate, animate, write, edit, and produce videos about science for text book publishers, scientists, and the general public. 

I am extremely passionate about science communication and helping scientists become better visual communicators.
