I design static visual aids to communicate insights and information through data. At the core of all my work, I focus on the end-user to alleviate their pains and create gains. One example of how I incorporate user research in my work is digging through online forums like Reddit. I read through them to understand pet peeves people talk about and synthesize general themes people identify. To some people, these are complaints. To me, they are opportunities to improve on design.

I write for Medium publications, write on my blog, and discuss on various Slack channels. I decided that I wanted to put all of my thoughts into something less formal while keeping it consistent. A newsletter seemed like the ideal way to do this. It’s not a newsletter meant for clients, it’s meant for people who want to learn more about what it’s like to be an independent data visualization designer.
