Humans think in images.

Our brains actually understand images faster, and remember images longer, than words.* As a result, our image choices are fundamental to communicating the significance of our work.

To share stories about science, the people who do it, and how we can use science in public decision-making, I create  customized illustrations like the magazine spread above. I make photographs that grab people’s attention, build connections, and share science in more documentary ways. I also love teaching and coaching that helps researchers and educators develop their capacity to make compelling images.

Humans have made drawings for eons, and our fascination with them persists. My drawings highlight aspects of a subject that are hard to capture with a photograph, and provide viewers compelling and informative images. More>>

Combined with the right words, photographs can and do make a difference. They connect us to each other, compel us to reconsider our biases and assumptions, and raise our awareness about what it means to share our humanity and be an earth citizen. I’m interested in projects and collaborations that explore these connections.
