Science Communicator & Naturalist
Online Comics & Science Art
These cartoons and charts explore the natural sciences and discuss environmental issues like climate change. In 2015 they were the subject of a museum exhibit. You can read interviews with me about these comics on NWF’s blog, Mother Nature Network, and The Birdist. I sell prints at TopatoCo.
I co-created this weekly comic about urban ecology with author and illustrator Maris Wicks. We tell you how cicadas make noise and why sparrows roll in dirt. We feature the work of researchers, including those studying owls in Australia and agoutis in Brazil.
I made Wild Toronto, a strip about city nature, for Torontoist. I’ve created infographics, logos, stickers, tshirts, and more for conservation groups. I’ve also made games (eg. a poison ivy ID quiz and a game about albatross conservation).
Books & Articles
From 2014-2016 I coordinated Mass Audubon’s quarterly publication Connections, and I helped develop their newest publication, Explore. I also wrote for Mass Audubon’s Your Great Outdoors blog.
Walks & Talks
When I’m not writing, I’m in the field doing some amateur nature photography and trying not to feed the mosquitoes.
