Hi, my name is Al. 

 

I often wear bowties and when I am not, you can find me in a turtleneck. I'm a chocolate lover, I am a people-person, and I am a firm believer in the fascinating ideas that take shape when different fields come together.

After graduation, I began my next great adventure. I bought a one-way ticket to Osaka, Japan, without speaking the language, knowing anyone or anything about the place. There, I worked as a graphic designer and brand developer for a Japanese startup.

Now I'm diving into the creative world of London.

I'm always looking to learn something new & to tackle the next brief.

Publications

I completed a double major in Microbiology & Immunology as well as English Literature at the University of British Columbia (Vancouver, Canada). That means I got to study how the Black Plague affected medieval literary works and all about the bacteria that was behind it!

Finding and exploring multi-disciplinary connections is my passion. Below are two of my publications that are equally fascinating but vastly different. 

Construction of p-ANPT, a Novel pBR322-derived Plasmid

Co-authored and published a research paper in the Journal of Experimental Microbiology and Immunology about the construction of a new pBR322-derived plasmid without Tetracycline resistance. 

 

Language as Power: The terminology of contemporary mass movements

Co-authored, designed, stylized and digitized this book about phrases of mass movements that include "Occupy Wall Street" & "Adbusters".
