Visualizing Data for Analysis & Decision Making

As a data vizualization and data strategy consultant, I change how people (literally) look at their data, resulting in new discoveries, deeper understanding, and better decision-making.

This includes advising data analysts, scientists, product designers, and software engineers, collaborating with data viz teams, and prototyping data visualization solutions to data analysis challenges. I've created visualizations for Google Research, Scientific American, National Geographic, Stanford, Yale, UC Berkeley, CDC, Santa Clara public health department, ACLU, Tailscale, Kickstarter, and even the Dalai Lama. My perspective in data visualization is grounded in my work forecasting/analyzing revenue data and advising executive stakeholders as a Senior Financial Analyst at Google.
