Finding Philly: The Search for COFFEE

Finding Philly: The Search for COFFEE

If you know us (you honestly don’t even need to know us all that well), it’s no secret that Lynsey and I love coffee. You also might be aware that we recently moved our family to Philadelphia…had we mentioned that? Post move, the first task of this coffee loving set of parents was to FIND ALL THE COFFEE Philly has to offer. Sure, we could have simply done a survey or asked some people we know in the area, but…

Make My Mother’s Day: Data Collection

Sometimes I forget where I’m driving them to. I do, I just stop in the middle of road and go, ‘Where are we going? How are we in this car? Who am I dropping off? and Where are we going?’ That happens a lot. It’s a lot of forgetful stuff that every mother has to deal with. -Amy PoehlerHappy Mother’s Day!

Stitch Fix: A Data Nerd’s Dream

Stitch Fix: A Data Nerd’s Dream

This Christmas, Lynsey Santa hooked me up with a Stitch Fix subscription. I am terrible (he means impatient -Lynsey) at buying clothes for myself, so I find this service quite helpful. Initially, I was getting a box every other month, but later switched to once a quarter (another super convenient piece of this business model). So far they have got my style spot on.Trends and convenience aside, I’m eager to talk about Stitch Fix as an aspiring data scientist because this company is doing some cutting edge…

Whiteboard Data Viz: Manic Mileage

Whiteboard Data Viz: Manic Mileage

It was not long ago that our travel was so uncomplicated. A single day often consisted of a ride to work and back, maybe interrupted by a quick errand on the way. These days are no more. Between school, work, errands, extra curricular activities and the like, we spend a TON more time in the car than we would like. After tracking mileage for a week, we drove a total of 366 miles (wince). Those of you with more than a 5 minute commute…

Whiteboard Data Viz: A Week of Wake-ups

Just how early do you need to wake up to experience one of those euphorically depicted mornings complete with meditation, full hair and makeup and the entire family gathered around the table for a wholesomely home cooked breakfast?

Whiteboard Data Viz: Say My Name

As soon as Lynsey thought of the title for this visualization, the family was exposed to an eye opening “Teen Lynsey” lip sync flash back.  As the parents of two kids, we hear the words ‘Mom’,’Dad’,’Mama’,’Dada’,’Daddy’ and every other variation…a lot. There’s only two of them, so we have a solid 1 on 1 situation in our household. Can you imagine how this mom of quadruplets feels?  ↓↓↓↓↓  So this weekend we decided to collect and visualize just how many times…
