Helping People Live a Better Story

...with Science

STEM Faculty | Human Experience Scientist

Speaker | Writer | Workshop Facilitator


I feel most alive when in front of a live audience and personally connecting to people who need a little support to think differently and create deeply innovative solutions through the power of science and play.

Since 2007, my goal as STEM Faculty at San Jose State University has always been the same: Make Science Accessible for All. As an author and a speaker, I help people create better lives through science and only present on topics that are personally impactful and relevant to today's audience. 

Through sharing my research on innovation & fear, I hope to give science a soul and biology some much needed bravado. 

In addition to being a LEGO Serious Play certified facilitator, I hold two Masters degrees in Biology and Science Communication from Imperial College London, in which I graduated with honors, and will complete my PhD in media psychology in 2020.
