Hello, I'm Nati! 

I love using art and animation to tell stories about science and health. 

As a biomedical communicator, I work at the intersection of art, science, and technology. I strive to transform complex information into clear, engaging visuals to communicate science for educational, research or promotional purposes.

 

I graduated from Brown University with a ScB in Marine Biology with Honours and from VanArts Institute with a 2D Character Animation Diploma with Honours. After working as a vertebrate biology research assistant, and then as an animator for a kids cartoon show, I decided to combine my love of science and art by pursuing a MSc in Biomedical Communications at UofT.

“Collaborating with Nati was a joy. She approached our projects with careful thought and top quality craftsmanship. Her flexibility, attention to detail, and prompt delivery demonstrated her professional level of service, and her creative approach made us excited to review her work. She’s our go-to animator for projects of this nature.”
