Artwork and Design


Youtube Channel and Online Presence | December 2014 - Present

I run a YouTube channel under the name "Haasio Draws" that has 20 thousand subscribers. I post art, drawing tutorials and animations, sometimes under environmental or herpetological activism.

In addition to my YouTube channel, I also have a DeviantArt account, where I take character drawing or design commissions and post miscellaneous work. I occasionally host art contests on DeviantArt to spread awareness about climate change and inspire my audience to send messages through their artwork.


Canvas Painting Donations | July 2016 - Present

My preferred medium is digital, though I also create acrylic paintings. The majority of these are donated to auction fundraisers hosted by the Waquoit Bay Junior Sailing Program or the nonprofit reptile rescue, The Gecko Sanctuary.

iNaturalist | April 2018 - Present

Blanding’s Turtle Conservation| June 2018 - June 2019

Starting June 2018, I worked with Grassroots Wildlife Conservation to raise and release the turtles during 10th grade Biology class. As of June 2019, I've helped release eight Blanding's turtles.

In March 2019, I published an article to the REPTILES Magazine about it, and in April 2019, I was invited to an elementary school in Holliston, MA, to talk about my experience with Blanding's turtle conservation to students.

Exotic Pet Husbandry and Handling | February 2015 - Present

I have experience working with captive amphibians, reptiles, and fish. These are typically rehomed to me as unwanted pets, often with minor health complications. Due to this, I've learned to treat minor ailments such as minor respiratory infections, shell rot, fin rot, and dropsy. I've used my captive turtles as ambassador animals during presentations. I have also done some volunteer work at Malvern Veterinary Hospital.

Music | January 2008 - Present

I started playing the piano in 2008. I passed the Grade 5 ABRSM Piano exam (2016), and currently play the viola, kalimba and Chinese zither for fun. I played viola with a volunteer chamber group for nursing homes and art shows (2017-2018). I have perfromed with the Weston High School Chamber Orchestra as a violist (2019-2020).

Other | September 2015 - July 2016

Between 2015-2016, I wrote articles for the Weston Life magazine as a student writer.
