SIMPLIFIED SCIENCE BLOG

At the end of January, I packed up my belongings and hopped in the car with my fella and cat to make the 3,000 mile journey from Troy, New York to Portland, Oregon! It was a fantastic year on the East Coast, but I am excited to be back in the town of coffee, mountains, and ridiculously good food.

With my recent business growth and the fella’s job promotion, I feel grateful for the opportunities that the Northwest has brought our way.

Oregon has a vibrant and supportive bioscience community that I am just beginning to discover! My business depends on building good relationships with clients and I am having a blast making new connections with people at OHSU, OSU, Oregon Academy of Science, Sigma Xi, OTRADI, and Oregon Bioscience Association.

Thank you, Oregon!

Three years ago, I realized that I had a passion for communicating research concepts with engaging data graphics and presentations, and I began to work toward a career in science illustration, animation, and communication design.

The hard work has paid off and I happy to announce that after finishing my PhD in Neuroscience in January 2015, I moved across the country, published a first-author paper in Nature Communications , and I started my own scientific animation and data graphics company called Simplified Science Publishing, LLC.

My move from research to the world of graphic design has been a thrilling, (and occasionally terrifying), transition and I am working hard to accomplish my goals. The goals:

  • Establish my career as a scientific data graphics artist. I provide illustrations, animations, and presentation designs for science research and education.
  • Expand my portfolio of illustrations and animations. This blog will showcase new projects as I increase my clientele.
  • Write and illustrate an accessible human anatomy book titled "The Internal Tour: An Entertaining Introduction to the Human Body." This book is a heavily illustrated guide to the human body that satisfies a craving for both knowledge and entertainment.
  • Help you complete your creative or scientific project. If you don't have the time or skills to use Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, After Effects, or Maya to complete your project, contact me for help!

These goals would be impossible without my fella, family, friends, and mentors who have supported me on my path to have a successful scientific career. Thanks everyone!

Future blog posts will highlight new illustrations and cartoons, teasers from my book The Internal Tour, and Simplified Science business updates.

Cheers!
