Class of 2014


B.A. (Archaeology) Boston University


I never expected to do anything serious with art. It was always just a hobby, doodles in notebooks and a few elective classes in high school. I went into college undeclared, with little clear idea of what I wanted to do. I ended up fascinated by archaeology, and went to a field school in Guatemala, working on a dig at a Maya site. I drew soil and architecture profiles as well as several burial excavations. I really enjoyed creating those drawings and began researching science illustration. I am excited for the opportunities the science illustration program at CSUMB has given me.
