Who Am I?

Artist & Scientist, I’m a one-person business (though I sometimes get help from my cats) who gets excited easily and loves working with people like you!

I’m Gaius, a trans* female to male-ish non-binary queer. A trained artist and scientist, I’m obtained my PhD in Cancer Biology from the University of Arizona 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 cool stories about nature to life.

I’ve always loved a good story.

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

I am very impressed with Gaius’s skills as an artist, scientist, and communicator. If you’re looking for someone who can understand your vision and turn your ideas into an eye-catching graphic, I can’t recommend him enough.

When it comes to science communication, Gaius is a true “unicorn,” bringing together backgrounds in art and science to create eye-catching and informative images.
