Cassio is a senior medical illustrator at the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) located in downtown Chicago, Illinois, with more than 10 years of experience in the field.

JAMA is a weekly peer-reviewed publication of clinical and basic medical research, whose primary readership consists of physicians, clinicians, researchers, scientists, allied health professionals, and medical students. As part of the Editorial Graphics Department of JAMA, Cassio develops and creates figures (illustration, diagrams, schematics) to accompany both scientific (review) articles and patient education information. He strives to create visuals that simultaneously engage and clarify.

Cassio feels fortunate to have worked on diverse projects and in different capacities over the years, and has thoroughly enjoyed being in the presence of energetic and dedicated individuals. Cassio received his MA in Medical and Biological Illustration from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He is a certified medical illustrator and professional member of the Association of Medical Illustrators and the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators. His work has received recognition and awards.

His current professional mission is to [1] create innovative visual communication solutions in medicine and science, and [2] to challenge his technical, conceptual, and creative skills as an artist and communicator. He also maintains an avid interest in fine art illustration, in large part because of his background in traditional studio art. Cassio is always eager to entertain ideas for collaborative projects (especially those that are cross-discipline!), and is open to freelance work on a time-available basis.
