About Me

Biography:

I'm an Art Director for the ATLAS lab, and a board-certified medical illustrator and animator. At ATLAS I wear many hats, from designing user interfaces for apps to building anatomical models in 3D. I create visuals that help people understand science and medicine, especially providing patients with information about their condition or upcoming procedures, and conveying complex scientific concepts for research.
