About me

Meet Tobi

I first found about the profession of medical illustration when I was in high school. I completed a specialist degree in Developmental Biology at the University of Toronto. But not wanting to neglect my other passions, I also finished minors in Visual Studies (studio art) and French Language.


The BMC program has allowed me to learn and explore new technologies for biomedical communication. Now I am off to the real world to apply what I've learned, and to continue learning in the process.


I look forward to meeting and working with you.
