As an animal husbandry intern at the New York Aquarium, I took care of the coral exhibit and other animal tanks. I have experience in various aspects of animal care, biochemistry, and raising polyps. This year, I apprenticed as a scientific illustrator with David Wheeler, a renowned New York artist. My wish is to combine my scientific background in biology and marine ecosystems with my artistic ability as a scientific illustrator.
