The last warm day of 2021, Vancouver Canada.

In 2015, I left a glamorous career as a PhD researcher to pursue the even more glamorous life of a full-time creative.

After an undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering and a Master’s in Biomechanical Design, I was halfway through a Ph.D program (in Neuroscience) before quitting the academic ladder for my true passion - writing and telling stories.

SneakyArt began as a way to learn to draw better … so that I could draw better comics. I am an accidental artist. During the early days of the pandemic, I became a podcaster.


One purpose of this newsletter is to establish a consensual, positive relationship with the art we like. It is better to connect with art outside of social media algorithms.

Here are three ways to know me better:

🎙 [LISTEN] My epic conversation (5+ hours) with Amit Varma on his podcast, The Seen and the Unseen.

🎙 [LISTEN] A more reasonably paced 25-min conversation - about jumping from scientific academia to the creative life - with Natasha Mitchell on ABC’s Science Friction in Australia.

📝 [READ/LISTEN] A recent post I wrote re-introducing myself and my work.
