As a child, I hated maths. I was terrible at it. At 13, my maths teacher created a whole new grade for me because no one had ever done as badly. This, combined with a maths whizz for a Dad, turned me off the whole thing.

However, I’ve now learned to enjoy numbers, thanks to the wonders of Excel. I have learned to love teasing out the meaning in data, creating beautiful charts, and busting common misconceptions with a simple percentage. I want to share this with you, by exposing the truth behind the numbers we see everyday, whether in the headlines or deep rooted in our understanding of the world.

I hope you enjoy my blog!
