I’m Tim.

I make digital things, and help people make sense of numbers and data. I’m based in London, in the UK.

I’ve a varied set of skills, with a background in software engineering, computer science, mathematics and statistics, as well as a bit of graphic, motion and interaction design.

If you need assistance with a software project, or need to analyse, visualise or gather quantitative data and research, I can almost certainly help. I’ve been working at the intersection of mathematics, technology and design for over eight years, and have been an independent contractor for the last two.

If you work for a charity, public-sector or campaigning organization with a focus on sustainability, environment, equality, or social justice, please do get in touch, in particular. I’ve a strong preference for work that helps build the sort of future I’d like to see for our planet and society, and to that end I’m prepared to offer substantially discounted rates to any organizations working towards a similar vision!

You can look at my full CV, or just get in touch if you’re interested in hiring me.

Here are a few things I’ve worked on recently:

  • A statistical dashboard for Polkaspots' small-business WiFi customers and local authorities, involving some pretty interesting data analysis, visualisation and mapping work.
  • BBC Research and Development's ongoing project to build a searchable, archive of every programme they've broadcast over the last six years.
  • A map visualising the effects of fire station closures in London, made in collaboration with the Open Data Institute.
  • Connect & Do, an online tool to help socially isolated people become more active in their local communities, made in collaboration with PAN Studio and Innovation Unit.
  • Property Detective, a web-based service for house-movers to find out more about their new neighbourhood, using the power of open data.

I have a sporadically updated blog which you might be interested in reading; you can also find me on Twitter and Github.
