Work With Me

I started getting people excited about numbers nearly 20 years ago, teaching middle school math in New Orleans through Teach For America. As an award-winning science writer, I’ve been working at the intersection of language and numbers for decades.

I recently wrote Making Numbers Count: The Art and Science of Communicating Numbers with Chip Heath, coauthor of Switch and Made to Stick.

Today, I’m also the official data storytelling and communication teacher for Section4, the MasterClass of business education.

(Ready to start? Go here.)



Inspired by my highly-rated class at Section4, learn a 4-part framework to make your data sing: Simplify, Clarify, Captivate, and Motivate.


Stressed about your presentation? Anxious about that paper? I’ll do the heavy lifting.
