San Francisco

I’m a scientist, educator, and designer. More specifically I research ecology and evolution, tutor high school math & science, and make educational games.

My start-up, STEAM Galaxy Studios, creates games, stories, and toys that emphasize the creativity inherent in STEAM (Science, Tech, Engineering, Arts, and Math). Our goal is to increase the diversity of kids inspired to pursue STEAM.

I can be spotted biking around San Francisco, purusing used book stores, and playing fiddle in a bluegrass band called Nimbleweed.

What are you pointing at? Thumbs up to flying lizards! I’m serious. Go check out the genus Draco. Photo taken in the Museum of Vertebrate Zoology at UC Berkeley.

What's that in the background image? It's a fossilized lower jaw of a camel that died during the last ice age. (Did you know that camels evolved in North America?) Photo taken in the Santa Monica mammal deposits near LA.
