B.A. (Geology and Chemistry) Oberlin College of Arts and Sciences


While a student at Oberlin College, I became inspired to pursue science illustration during my tenure as the art coordinator of The Synapse Magazine, a student science publication that bridges art and science. As a visual learner myself, I understand how vague and complex science can be when described with only words. Now, I strive to make science more understandable by making it accessible with illustrations. Outside of science illustration, I write comics, designs creatures and collects rocks.
