About me

My name is Gerardo Furtado and I live in Melbourne, Australia. Data visualization has been a passion of mine for a long time: I love the challenge of producing a meaningful and truthful infographic.

Some time ago I discovered the power of d3.js, a JavaScript library created to manipulate data. With d3.js one can manipulate DOM elements based on data (any data), and thus create beautiful and interactive data visualizations for the web.

And, just recently, I decided to start freelancing in d3.js.

Science is another of my passions: I have a book published on Evolutionary Biology (as well as some awarded fiction works) and I have given classes on biology for more than twenty two years. And, as a teacher, I have to be an eternal student.
