In  the Field

For close to 20 years I've worked with scientists to tell the stories of their work to children and the general public, working through my books, magazine articles, and science comics to convey the adventures we share.  




And if you're a scientist interested in working with me, please email me at

I did #AntarcticLog science comics aboard the JOIDES Resolution's Expedition 379 in the Amundsen Sea, Antarctica. Click the JR ship at left. 

In 2018 I sailed off to Palmer Station, Antarctica. For more, visit my Antarctic Log, a weekly science comic. 

Aboard E/V Nautilus we bring deep-sea

discovery into classrooms and living rooms worldwide. Click the compass.

NASA's ICESCAPE mission took scientists -- and me! -- to the Arctic to assess the impacts of climate change on the environment there. Click the polar bear. 


I took part in the Extreme Project, diving 

in DSV Alvin to hydrothermal vents.

My Neutrally Buoyant  t-shirts are printed with my illustrations of submersibles Alvin and Hercules.
