Hello, my name's Daniel Doherty, and I make things on the internet.

I'm a data visualizer, technologist and producer, currently based in Portland, Oregon.

Work and background.

Presently I'm at Opal, where I work on product and marketing operations, business intelligence, and data engineering and visualization projects. In the past, I've worked as a senior producer at various digital agencies, including AKQA, Mekanism, Domani and Periscopic.

I started my career as a designer/developer, and have incorporated practical design and technology into all my work since. Before that, I studied visual journalism at the University of Montana, and information design and data visualization at MICA. My technical work is executed in Python and Javascript, especially D3, but I also use SQL, R, Excel, Tableau, Illustrator, Keynote, etc.

Recent work.

An Ocean of Noise, my graduate thesis project, explores streaming music data from Spotify Charts. Shortlisted for a 2017 Kantar Information Is Beautiful Award.

Fifty Thirty Twenty, an exploration of income and financial stability in the US, in collaboration with designer, classmate and friend Amy Cesal, which actually won a 2017 Kantar Information Is Beautiful Award!
