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.
