As a working scientist dealing with genomics "big data", I've found out the hard way how important it is to do creative yet honest data visualizations, both for other scientists and for the public. I've been using a mishmash of Python, Javascript (d3, Raphael, amcharts, whatever gets the job done), R, Photoshop and, yes, even Excel (an approach I call data spelunking as opposed to data mining) and have leveraged those skills into a weekly blog at


information and graphic design, interactive design, programming, artwork and creative coding, visualization and design criticism


Bachelor's degree, professional diploma in analytical chemistry and lots of hard-won, on-the-job trauma.
