Hello

My name's Mark!

I'm a scientist turned illustrator and designer that specializes in scientific education and communication.

About me

I'm a scientist and a visual storyteller who takes complex, sophisticated ideas and translates them into beautiful, educational illustrations and visuals. I have a history working in science, having completed a Bachelors in Arts & Science and Biology, and a Masters in Geochemistry and Astrobiology. My research experience has made me aware of the value and importance of scientific communication, especially from a visual standpoint.

 

I believe that with visual design and communication, we can tell better stories, accelerate learning, and make science accessible to everyone.
