BACKGROUND
AND
OBJECTIVES.



top

Art and science are the cornerstones on which I've built my professional career.  Originally  
I lead parallel careers as an exhibiting artist and as a biochemical researcher.  I combined 
both interests in the position of Biochemist at the National Gallery of Art, where I developed 
and published analytical methods for the study of art.  Still at the intersection of art and 
science, I began animating biomedical processes for textbook CD-ROM's and interactive 
Websites.  I also give presentations to grade-school teachers and students on the science 
behind art materials.  Ultimately, having grown up in South America, Europe and Africa, 
I bring a multifaceted perspective to each enterprise.  My goal is to continue to present 
education concepts in an interactive visual format.
