A little bit ‘about’ me.

I think data and develop data visualisation to explore complex narratives.

My journey to data and visualisation involved traversing three different newsrooms in Aotearoa New Zealand.

Nowadays, I develop and design visualisation at Elements Data Studio as a co-founder.

At the New Zealand Herald, I created and headed the data journalism department which eventually grew to have three full-time roles and also resulted in the inception of Herald Insights - a dedicated data journalism subsite.

I won the NZ media awards for the best use of interactive graphics twice and the best innovation in multimedia storytelling, during that time.

I taught myself programming and visualisation. I am passionate about learning and understanding the world through data.

The same passion is what led me to develop data visualisation workshops, which I teach frequently. These include, an introduction to data and visualisation, R programming and D3.js introduction.
