Hey there! I am an illustrator and animator who is dedicated to bridging the gap between medical science and education for students, patients, doctors and researchers.

My combined passion for art and science allows me to create compelling visual stories that educate and motivate in equal measures. My extensive background in various fields of biological sciences allows me to create visualizations with clarity and accuracy.

I enjoy creating clean and modern illustrations. I am always seeking new opportunities to learn and improve my skills.

Other than arts and science, I like to try new food and explore new restaurants. I also love to make delicious things using my oven.

If you would like to work with me, please don't hesitate to contact me at or drop me a quick message on my contact page.
