Work With Me

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

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

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



Inspired by my highly-rated class at Section4.


Do you have a report, presentation, or paper? Pressed for time? I’ll do the heavy lifting.


Want me to give you ongoing guidance? Or maybe you just need to pick my brain for an hour… if so, pick a time.
