Hi, I’m Erin, and I make stuff with data. 

Some FAQ about me:

  • I am currently a data viz journalist at Axios
  • I live in beautiful Portland, Oregon
  • I use she/her pronouns. 
  • Almost all of my work is done in R–from data collection and analysis through visualization. I usually add in text, headers, and legends in AI/PS. I rely heavily on the tidyverse (especially ggplot and dplyr) and the sf package for mapping.
  • My biggest hot tips for learning data visualization are: start much much smaller than you think you need to, Google every step of the way, and emulate designers that inspire you.
  • I am open for freelancing! (evenings and weekends)
