Delving into Data Visualization

Delving into Data Visualization

Data Visualization is one of the early sparks that ignited my passion for UX and UI design. It also exposed me to programming concepts and tools that have helped make me a better designer today. I find quantitative analysis to be a fascinating subject both in practice, theory, and history. When it is combined with designing an interface that is intuitive to use and understand? Well friends, that's my sweet spot.

Tools & Skills: HTML, CSS, JS, R, Web-scraping, Open data APIs, Adobe Photoshop

In particular I enjoy leveraging the open data that is offered by the City of New York as well as other jurisdictions. Combined with a simple mapping library like Leaflet.js, it is possible to uncover fascinating insights. Using city data I have been able to plot interactive maps of noise complaints related to parties on major holidays, building permits in up and coming neighborhoods, and even map active liquor licenses in various parts of NYC. My work has been published on Forbes.com as well as Bowery Boogie.
