I want to share science in creative ways all over the web.

Neil McCoy worked as a web designer for the Department of Applied Ecology at NC State University, where he collaborated with scientists and educators to communicate science in creative and engaging ways to broad audiences. He helped bring Your Wild Life to the masses by designing websites, iBooks and print materials.
