Andy Kirk is a UK-based freelance data visualisation architect, consultant, training provider, author and editor of the website visualisingdata.com, a popular data visualisation blog.
After graduating from Lancaster University in 1999 with a B.Sc (hons) in Operational Research, he held a number of business analysis and information management positions at some of the largest organisations in the UK.
Late 2006 provided Andy with his career-changing ‘eureka’ moment when he discovered the subject of data visualisation. He has subsequently pursued a passion in this subject, completing a research Masters M.A (With Distinction) at the University of Leeds in 2009.
In February 2010 he launched visualisingdata.com with the mission of providing readers with inspiring insights into the contemporary techniques, resources, applications and best practices in this exciting subject. His consultancy work and training courses extend this ambition, helping organisations of all shapes, sizes and domains master the analysis and communication of their data. Some of his most recent clients include Microsoft, Disney, Intel and McKinsey.
Andy has just released his first book entitled “Data Visualization: a successful design process”, a handy strategy guide for anyone facing the challenges of designing a data visualization and wanting to accomplish an effective solution in the most efficient way.
