Painting with Data


Data-visualisation trades in metaphor and allusion. At its best, it’s imaginative storytelling with data and algorithms. We’ll explore how to create beauty with JavaScript, how dataviz can shape the way we see the world, and how you can get started painting with data.

I'm a London-based front-end dev from New Zealand with ten years of experience, specialising in interactive data-visualisation. I often work with React and D3, and am interested in accessibility, open web standards and usability.

I once won a "Code in the Dark" blind-coding competition, but I also once took down a client website overnight by deploying to the wrong endpoint at 5pm, so overall I reckon I'm breaking even.
