a little About Me

 

Hi there! My name is Tiffany and I'm an information designer, turning data into visual narratives for a wide variety of clients.

As a data designer I've had the opportunity to collaborate with some great people, including Scientific American, Fast Company, Popular Science, Quartz and Google and have worked on many different kinds of projects, from making complex processes understandable and live-charting events to telling stories with data and designing data-driven dashboards.

Previously based in Bath, UK, I recently relocated to the beautiful state of Vermont, where I live with my husband (UK coffee tasting champion '13 and '14) and am fuelled by sci-fi and fantasy books, good coffee and hiking. In June 2016 my husband and I also opened our very own specialty coffee shop, Onyx Tonics, which I co-run in the little spare time I have!
