The world deserves better charts and maps.
I strongly believe in the power of maps and visuals to help us understand complex problems.
In our world, we are inundated with words: documents, reports, and briefings. While words are essential, I believe that presenting information with a combination of maps, diagrams, and graphs, is often more effective.
I enjoy designing both static and interactive visualizations, and I always think about their usability. In my free time, I also enjoy reading books about design and data visualisation.
