About

I provide creative direction, project management, and strategic solutions for complex visual challenges. I use new media to explain science and inspire a curiosity about medicine and the natural world.

I earned my Master of Science in Biomedical Communications from the University of Toronto. I develop and enhance cultural, life sciences, and healthcare projects.
