I am so excited to announce that I have accepted a position as a research assistant in the Department of Learning, Informatics, Management, and Ethics at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden! What an exciting development! Who knew this would happen!?

I'm so excited to be working on the EIT Health "CARE" project. I will be creating eLearning modules using illustrations, animations, and sequential visual storytelling (comics!!!) techniques for communicating senior healthcare to caregivers all across Europe.

On top of the exciting career opportunity, I am also thrilled to have relocated to the gorgeous city of Stockholm, and I am looking forward to enjoying fika and kannelbulle over the next year!

I will still be available for contract and commission work, so if you are interested in creating visuals to accurately communicate your project in science, medicine, healthcare -- or anything, really! -- get in touch!

In December 2017, I gave a "Lightning Talk" at the SciVizNYC Conference about "Scientific Storytelling". I introduced comics and sequential art as an educational tool, and showed off the production of my original comic "Finding the Footprints of Life", based on my time with the Pavilion Lake Research Project and NASA AMES.

Check out the recorded video above, and let me know what you think! It was a fun new experience for me! Check out my comic: Finding the Footprints of Life


I'm really excited to announce that I'll be giving a "Lightning Talk" at this year's Science Visualization Conference in New York City this year on December 1st!
