Animation | Medical Art | Visual Storytelling



I'm an animator and illustrator living in the San Francisco Bay Area. I am passionate about translating complex scientific concepts into beautiful and entertaining visuals, and using science to inspire my personal artwork.


Originally from Chicago, I grew up loving art, animation, and science. In 2011, I moved to the Bay Area to live my dream of being a 3D animator. My artwork has been featured on National Geographic, the Colbert Report, and numerous climate science websites. I spend my free time drawing, hiking, and attending local art/science lectures.
