CV

The latest innovations in space exploration, science, and technology have launched us into a new age. One that has shifted our perception of the world through significant scientific breakthroughs and interplanetary discoveriesWe now find ourselves living in a realm of knowledge hitherto unfathomed. A reality that almost sounds like science fiction and one where possibilities keep opening up. Exciting times for sure!


As an artist and creative director of PLASMA Magazine, it is my personal mission to connect with the researchers and innovators who are propelling us into this new age in order to share their vision, their personas, their work, and their process with the public. Through my passion of the science-art interface (SAI), and as Creative Director of PLASMA, I ensure that this information is delivered in a range of creative and engaging formats including photographs, on-site interviews, videography, and commentary articles. 

My experience as both a worldwide art consultant and communicator for the scientific community has allowed me to develop a very unique skillset that I use to promote SAI. Amongst these are: generation of innovative science imagery and aesthetic, brand creation and marketing, highlighting the positivity within our professional and personal lives. Over the past 5 years, my vision and skills have allowed me to meet with over 1000 scientists, Nobel laureates, curators, engineers, artists, astronauts and innovators from a wide range of fields. I have led these meetings and interviews at art and research institutions all over the world, from San Francisco to Astana.
