Summary

Illustrator turned designer turned physics student turned scientific artist.

From 2014 -21 I've led the visuals at Quanta Magazine — creating and art-directing design, concepts, illustrations, animation, and photography to accompany some of today’s best writing about the sciences and math.

I most enjoy communicating the wonders of basic science via fantastical imagery and “visualizing invisible things”.
