Scientific Illustration with molecular modeling: $40/hour
Basic scientific Illustration: $35/hour

I recently graduated with a Ph.D. in Biochemistry at the University of Colorado at Boulder, where I studied the structure and mechanisms of unique proteins secreted by pathogenic microbes. Combining this chemical and biochemical comprehension with technical illustration skills I honed while in graduate school, I create scientific illustrations that are both accurate and attractive. I especially enjoy creating illustrations that introduce scientific ideas to a more general audience. Being scientifically literate will become increasingly important as our society progresses into the future.

I like: goldfish, ukiyo-e, cats, 3D molecular animation, cheese, fermenting food, scientific illustration, whistling, microbes, oil painting, aspiring to be vegan, backpacking, making prototypes, cooking, 日本語を習います, getting really close to artwork, trying new things
