PBI Role Professional Experience Personal Statement

Steve is employed by the American Museum of Natural History as a Scientific Assistant in the Division of Invertebrate Zoology. Though not directly funded by PBI, he is assisting with video editing, plant imaging and miscellaneous web graphics.

While completing his BS in Horticulture at the University of Connecticut (1977), Steve was trained by M.J. Brush and began working as a Scientific Illustrator, drawing bugs for Dr. James A. Slater. He then received his MFA in New Genres/Video at The San Francisco Art Institute and has worked variously as a carpenter, video maker, artist and illustrator.

I'm honored to contribute to this project. It is important that we know as much about bugs and plants as possible.
