Nolan Pakizer

Nolan is from Metro Detroit and graduated from Michigan State University Lyman-Briggs College with a B.S. in Human Biology. He made fast friends with the pre-medical students in his classes, but had always felt drawn to creating art and visual media too. In his third year of college, he took up a minor in Graphic Design in hopes of pursuing the BVIS program. Figure drawing, histology, and genetics were his favorite undergraduate subjects.

Nolan is still exploring the medical illustration field, but knows he wants to actively create representation for LGBTQ+ and minority communities through his future work. He is excited to learn applications of 3D modeling, animation, virtual reality, and surgical illustration.
