About me

I tell stories with data. Ever heard that talk about chasing news and bringing to light issues that shouldn't be hidden? I do pretty much the same, but before knocking on doors, I write some code and analyze huge spreadsheets. There are stories in every corner and there are also stories to be uncovered in databases.
