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. We chat 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.
