I enjoy looking at data, creating spreadsheets and creating models to understand and learn about the world. It’s a big part of what I do in my day job. To present data on the web and reach a wide audience, I am focusing on finding interesting datasets and fun and interactive ways to present it.¬† Hopefully these things will be interesting to others. In turn, it is also a good chance for me to learn some new skills and refine existing skills: web programming (javascript, server stuff, python, web scraping), and data visualization skills (data wrangling, graphing, mapping, animation, and interactivity).


If you have any ideas for interesting data sets, educational tools or any other general suggestions or requests, please let me know. I’m especially interested in hearing from educators and others who work in the public sector as I may be able to help out with projects, etc. .
