Innovation and coming up with fresh ideas is my objective. In 2008, I received national recognition for conceptualizing and proposing an action plan to create a motion capture tool that enables students and instuctors to create real-time biochemistry animations in the classroom (Gold Prize in Visual Arts, RBC Scholarship for Undergraduates). Since then, I have been pursuing my Masters of Science degree in Biomedical Communications, where I have gained the knowledge and skillset to be a more effective communicator of science and medicine.
Prior to that, I began developing my first teaching animations as a 2nd year cell biology student... using PowerPoint! Today, I am proficient in developing new media projects using Illustrator, Flash/ActionScript 3.0, HTML/CSS, PHP/SQL... and the list is sure to grow as I continue exploring technologiy's latest and greatest.
...in early development. Kindergarten "Show-and-Tell". I somehow maintained that early passion for sharing the things that fascinate me. And ever since, I have been honing my skills as a "shower" and "teller" — a teacher — of music, mathematics, science, religion, and design. I've also had the privilege to learn from some of the most effective communicators at leading research institutions such as CanChild, Centre for Childhood Disability Research, and Hamilton Health Sciences, where I gained my current perspective and respect for discovery and dissemination.
