I am a research scientist and data wrangler based in Seattle, WA. I've previously worked as a contributor to ggplot2, and as an information manager at Washington State University and at the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis (NCEAS). I completed a master's in library and information science at the University of Washington, where I focused on data visualization.

I collect data visualizations gone beautifully wrong on a blog called accidental aRt, and when I'm not writing R code I can often be found in a ballet studio.
