Frequently Asked Questions

Can I hire you or buy something from you?

A) Yes, I have done freelance/contract work in the past, and I will continue to collaborate on projects in the future, however I also produce educational videos independently, so my availability isn’t guaranteed. Do feel free to contact me by email or through the contact form with some details about your project, including the timeframe, type of media/materials to be created, and content. Then I will either respond with a quote for the job, or with regrets that my availability is too limited.

B) I don't have a shop, nor any merchandise for sale yet. If you want to purchase a print, contact me, and we can work something out.

Can I request a video tutorial?

Sure! I can't guarantee to make it, or make it soon, but I'm always interested to hear what topics people want to learn about.

What is a biomedical communicator?

Someone who informs and engages people about biology and medicine through the use of visual media. The “people” can be doctors, patients, researchers, students, or the general public. The “media” can be illustrations, photographs, animations, games, apps, websites, and likely many others.

Where did you get your training?

I received a Bachelor of Science in Molecular Biology at the University of Victoria. I learned how to program as a bioinformatician. I learned how to make computer animations initially on my own, through web tutorials, books, and experimentation. Subsequently I received a Masters of Science in Biomedical Communications at the University of Toronto. I continue to learn through various avenues on the web, through colleagues, and doing fun personal projects. Oh, and let's not forget my great high school education that kicked off my passions.
