I am a Medical and Scientific Illustrator and Media Designer based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Career Interview for University of Toronto
I was honoured to be interviewed by a great group of U of T students about my work as a Medical Illustrator at Imagineeringart.com, Inc., and the path that led me here, including my education in the Master of Science in Biomedical Communications Program.
Here is a clip about the future of medical and scientific educational media, and how my career in traditional textbook illustration is evolving into the creation of interactive digital learning tools:
Profiling Opportunity – Pathways to the Future (POP) is a video project led by a team of life science students creating original videos that spotlight career possibilities & opportunities for life science students. This is a initiative with the Cell Systems Biology Department and the Faculty of Arts and Science’s Step Forward Program at the University of Toronto.
