My name's Nicolas Kayser-Bril and I'm a nerd. I co-founded and managed Journalism++ from 2011 to 2017. Before that, I was head of datajournalism at Owni.

For a living, I tell stories using data. I crunch, grind, chew and squeeze numbers to extract meaning out of them. That's called data-driven journalism and I'm proud to have been one of the first ones to practice it in Europe.

You can reach me at, follow me on Twitter @nicolaskb and on Facebook or add me on LinkedIn and XING.

In anticipation of the day when the centralized social networks above will become wholly unusable, you can also give me your email and I'll send you my blog posts when I publish them (once a month).

Things I did

Purple represents trainings I've conducted, dark blue are conferences I presented at, light blue are projects I'm proud of, bright red are articles I wrote and light ocre are interviews I gave.
