this is me!

When I was 9 years old, I wanted to be a painter, a scientist and a pirate. I had a gallery in my bedroom and caught salamanders for my terrarium. I also always loved to travel.

Fast forward 25 years: I hold a PhD in life sciences from Cambridge University (UK), lived and researched in three countries and draw (almost) every day.

I discovered that my combination of skills, interests and background is unusual and valued - particularly by the life science crowd:

I understand your needs and language and I am able to communicate your often specialized research topics in an image of broad appeal to a wide audience.

I found that I like to observe people, their interactions with their environment and the freedom within the confinements of illustration. This forms the basis of most of the images and services I am offering here.

I live with my beautiful wife and energetic toddler son in charming San Francisco. It's a little pricy here, so let's hire me for your project!



  • Talks, webpages, journal covers, articles,...
  • benefit from a bespoke image to make your content memorable


  • for web or print
  •  as a present for your PI?
  • your personal legend framed for your wall?
  • anyone really, because I just love drawing faces.


  • think street photography with a pen.
  • I draw your conference event, product or company.
  • images are great for social media, web or print.


  • webpages, logos, business cards
  • for Biotech startup or academic labs
  • executed by me or with partners
for very infrequent email updates.
I respect your privacy.
