I want to see, record, and understand the world around me as it unfolds.
I want to know how we are moved by the places we find ourselves. When we experience a place, how do we change it? How does it change us?
I believe it is critical to use all of the tools at our disposal to communicate the interaction between humans and everything that surrounds us.
My education is in science, with a Master’s in evolutionary biology. I spent sixteen years working for the Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission, managing projects to track and analyze stream habitat restoration projects for salmon and steelhead. In my work with data, I sought to translate complex scientific information into easily understandable stories.
In my illustration work, I seek to do the same with pictures, especially with pictures that show how the world changes over time.
