My name is Mike Swinn, I’m a data scientist, analyst and BI developer. I am fascinated by the ways in which humans consume and interpret information, but also the rapid shift towards big data and abstract algorithms controlling much of society itself.

This website is primarily a blog focusing on technology, data science and visualisation.


I work as an independent consultant within data science, analytics and business intelligence. I have experience as an analyst, developer and manager across the private and public sectors, in small and large organisations.

I am based near Birmingham (UK) and can cover most of the Midlands for contract work, or elsewhere in the UK for short-term work; I can also work remotely. For more details on my skill set or career history please visit my LinkedIn page, or get in touch via the contact form on this site.
