Inspiring creative vision through passion and knowledge.



I'm a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and author of 3 best-selling books. I train creative professionals and advise organizations on how to drive change through design.

I'm a celebrated voice on UX design and data visualization who has spent the past 15 years leading design teams and building cutting-edge digital experiences at companies like Google, Codecademy, Microsoft, Nokia, R/GA, Kontrapunkt, and the Museum of the Moving Image.


My books have been translated into several languages and featured in Science, Nature, FastCompany, WIRED, BBC, New York Times, and many more.


I love to mentor and train creative professionals in the areas of UX design, data visualization, and visual culture.
