Hi, I'm Nancy!
Let's work together to make the data you care about beautiful and useful! I'm thrilled to have finally launched as an independent creator and consultant for all things data visualization and data communication.
I have experience in research, education, and tech, most recently as a Data Visualization Developer at Microsoft and as an Information Visualization instructor to Masters' students in the University of Washington's Department of Human Centered Design and Engineering. Before that, I spent several wonderful years doing medical research in the UW Department of Biostatistics. My formal training was in Statistics from the University of California, Berkeley. I am the proud founder and organizer of the Data Viz Jam Sessions Meetup group which, at almost 6 years old, has grown to over 2,000 members across chapters in Seattle and Montreal.
My design methodology prioritizes preserving your voice in engaging, illuminating visualizations. Your work can and should have the presence it deserves. If you're looking for help with that, check out my Studio Hours
resource to set up a time.
One last note: This page is a space I created to experiment with data visualization concepts that didn't quite have a home
elsewhere. Not everything you'll find here makes perfect sense, is totally done, or follows traditional design and visualization canon...
and that's exactly the point. If we don't try things out, we'll never know what works!
