About me

Hello! My name is Jane, I am an independent data visualization designer based in Toronto, Canada.

Like most people in data visualization, I had an unusual entry into the field. My educational background is in life sciences and design strategy. Shortly after graduation, I worked at a startup during the day and began exploring my interest in data visualization in the evenings. Through personal projects, I have taught myself how to create data visualizations.

If you would like to work with me, you can learn more about how I work in this post.
