I’m a journalist who really loves numbers. I translate spreadsheets into written pieces, illustrations, audio and film.
- I write for the Guardian.
- My illustrations, which depict everything from immigrant detention to balding patterns, have been commended by the Royal Statistical Society.
- I executive produced and hosted Strange Bird, an audio experiment and before that, I had a regular slot on US National Public Radio. And my TV work has included the BBC (Is Britain Racist?), National Geographic (Neil Degrasse Tyson’s Star Talk) and Netflix (The Fix) as well as Channel 4 and VICE. I’m one half of the team that created the Emmy-nominated video series Vagina Dispatches.
- I started writing about statistics after analyzing large data sets at the Bank of England, Transparency International and the International Organization for Migration.
I’m based in New York. The only thing you need to know about my personal life is that I love Peter Falk.
