 Who

Hi! My name is Jon.

I've always had a fascination for art and science -- the creative and the technical; abstraction and purpose; expressiveness and usability.

So I concentrate on the areas where these domains converge: interface design, web development, and data visualization. But I am fortunate to have found inspiration all around me while working on all kinds of projects.

Currently I am a front-end web developer for the small but mighty Data Team at the Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument. Also on rare occasion I find a little time to take on small personal projects.

How

Tools & Methods

As they say, the web is constantly evolving. And I can't pretend to keep up with it all. But I too evolve -- seeking new forms, new tools, new solutions. Since I'm usually obsessed with getting it right, I gravitate towards open source technologies that allow me to tweak and customize, and they're usually more fun too.

Crossfiltering Hawai‘i Campaign Finance Data

Inspired by coverage of the lack of transparency in Hawaiian political money (Civil Beat), I found my way to data on data.hawaii.gov on political spending, campaign contributions and financial disclosures. Then I started building a tool with Crossfilter to quickly get a sense of who are the big players in Hawai‘i politics and just how much money is involved.

Methods: d3, crossfilter, dc.js

Hanalei Tide and Moon Calendar

While at PMNM, this involved a dual effort of graphic work on the main calendar layout, and then I used d3 to render the month grids and exported to PDF for print. Fish gonads!
