Highlights from recent work
You Are What You Stream | Spotify
I created this visualization as a backdrop for Spotify's talk at Cannes Lions 2017. The project animates the musical listening history of Dita Von Teese, suggesting that her streaming habits offer a window into her personality.
🏆Shortlisted for an Information is Beautiful Award.
Coördinator | Spotify
A visualization tool I created to compose Dita Von Teese's face out of 7,532 dots for the above presentation. Coördinator allows you to turn an SVG into XY coordinates. I recently open-sourced it at Spotify. Read more about the project, and contribute!
Citi Bike, the New York City bike share, introduced a few electric bikes into its fleet. But I couldn't find any. So I built a small web app to make it easier to snag one. It worked!
Want to fix gun violence in America? Go Local. | The Guardian US
I conducted a geographic analysis of gun violence and census data that highlighted the shocking concentration of gun violence in the United States. I led the investigation based on my data analysis and created the interactive graphics.
The Great Wall of Vulvas | The Guardian US
🏆The interactive won 'Equality and Woman's Promotion Best Graphics Award' at Malofiej25 and the series as a whole was nominated for an Emmy.
RioRun | The Guardian US
With the Guardian interactive team, I created a virtual audio tour running app for the 2016 Rio Olympics. I pitched the concept for the app, designed the UX and worked on the geolocation technology.
2016 Election Tracker | The Guardian US
My contribution was natural language generation for algorithmically created news alerts based on streaming AP data throughout the night. I also algorithmically generated thousands of paragraphs highlighting interesting facts for each county and district in the country.
Split Happens | The Guardian US
An investigation into 4-4 decisions on the Supreme Court, using case data going back to 1946. Analysis here.
Hyperventilating charts | The Guardian US
Even the line charts were anxious 3 days before the 2016 election. But they had no idea what was coming.
A Chrome browser extension that showed 311 complaint history against an address while looking for an apartment in NYC. Sadly, it broke at some point in the last year and I haven't gotten around to fixing it.
