Gaius, smiling
Gaius J. Augustus, PhD Headshot

I’m Gaius (pronounced guy-us). Yeah, that’s me over there with the goofy grin. You can read more about me below.

But first! You’ve got a story to tell. I’m here to help you get it out into the world.

Whether you need assistance with your creative project, want to host a workshop, or need someone to create your next piece of science art, I’ve got you covered.

If you’ve been too afraid to get started or you’re feeling stuck, reach out to me and let’s get your project going!


You + Me = Beautiful Science 1

About Gaius

You work hard to make sure that your science is accurate, robust, and impactful. You’re ready to share it with the world, and I can’t wait to see it!

There are many ways to communicate your science to the world, and each modality that you choose makes your work more accessible. Storytelling engages audiences, and adding visuals brings stories to life.

I’m Gaius, a trans* female to male-ish non-binary queer. A trained artist and scientist, I started my career as a video editor, working with animators and filmmakers to perfect the timing of their story. I later returned to university for science. I received my BSc in Integrative Studies (with a focus on Chemistry & Biology) in 2014 and my PhD in Cancer Biology in 2019. 

I was trained in fine arts, film & video production, and sound design before leaving it all for science. Now I’m putting it all together to bring your cool stories about our amazing world to life.

I’ve always loved a good story, and yours needs to be told.

As soon as I learned how to write, I started putting stories to paper. I taught myself to draw so I could bring visuals to those stories. And now, it’s your turn!

Our world is complex, and even the simplest things can turn into monsters to communicate. But tell it as a story, and suddenly complicated topics become more digestible.

I create infographics, illustrations, animations, and more to tell stories like the one you’re thinking of RIGHT NOW! I’ve also been told that I’m a natural teacher, and love to see creations made by those I work with.

I LOVE learning from my clients! If you want to work with someone who shares your vision and excitement, we should chat.

Inspiring

Not only did his final work blow me away, his entire approach to the project did. Gaius spent the time to fully understand my requirements, offered regular status updates and over-delivered on the final work. I look forward to my next opportunity to have him create for me because I know it will be just as inspiring.
