To give you an idea of the data projects I work on, here’s an overview of some projects I’ve worked on over the past few years:
- Turning Music Lyrics into Data Art; Google Cloud Natural Language API (Python), data visualisation (Python / Matplotlib), Illustration (Inkscape), and knowledge sharing (blogpost, git repos); 2019.
- Find a secret message in a book; Caesar Cypher (Python).
- Build my own watch faces for smartwaches; Pebble Time and Garmin Connect IQ.
Besides this, I had jobs that focused on data and analytics:
- 2012 – 2020: digital analytics in an online marketing
- 2020 – 2022: business analytics for the governmen
- 2023 – ????: freelance data visualization and analytics consultant and trainer.
The value of personal, creative projects
I learned a lot on the job. But I sometimes feel the urge to try out some new technology. When this happens, I define a personal project that forces me to try out some piece of technology. With this mindset, I’ve worked on some interesting products (e.g. build my own Garmin watch faces).
I give talks and workshops about my job and projects. They show how data and code can be combined in interesting and creative ways.
Blending data analysis, ethics and creativity
I currently see myself as having a somewhat weird, but interesting mix of interests. I like to work with data through code and visualisation. I like reading about the field to see where it’s going. I like to implement new theories and ways of working in businesses. I like the ethical dilemmas that come up when working technology and data. And I like the creative potential that data and data analysis have.
In the end, I try to have a good and fun relationship with my clients. And my skills in data analysis, data ethics and creativity help me get there.
