I’m a scientist, designer, violinist, and marine invertebrate enthusiast. I'm fascinated by how we share knowledge throughout generations, whether through scientific practices or cultural traditions. I believe that it's necessary to emphasize the scientific and creative process of arriving at results and conclusions, as well as equip learners inside and outside classrooms with the tools to engage in these processes themselves. 

I see storytelling as a necessary driver of both science and design—it's a method of communication but can also be used as a tool for immersion and learning. In recent years, I've been a science storyteller at the California Academy of Sciences, the Birch Aquarium, and Saltman QuarterlyWhen I'm not crafting written or visual stories, you can usually find me painting murals or exploring my local tide pools.
