I moved from the US to London to complete an MA in Communication Design (Central Saint Martins) in 2004 and never went home. With a background in book design and text visualisation, I work as a designer with a focus on data-related design, with work ranging from data visualization and information design to commissioned data art and data illustration for a variety of clients. My personal work focuses on the visual representation of language, literature, or numbers and has been exhibited internationally.
