Hi, I'm Francisco Dans.

I'm a software engineer with a fascination for data visualization, maps, communication, and building tools to improve the web. I am part of the Analytics Engineering team at the Wikimedia Foundation, and you'll usually find me working on the public statistics of the Wikipedia family.

I'm married to an incredibly talented Texan art writer named Lauren. I've lived in Santiago de Compostela, Brión, New Cross, Brockley, somewhere between a syrup factory and an airport, Camden Town and Madrid. Right now we're living in a different place every month until we relocate permanently to Austin, TX.

I like traveling to strange places. So far I've traveled to two three globally unrecognised countries. I'm very easily excited by isolated lands that somehow end up inhabited. Like the Pitcairn Islands.

I have an (un)healthy obsession with Armenia, the Japanese language, non-latin alphabets, 洋食, sandwiches from El Corte Inglés's cafeteria, opera and endless spirals of Wikipedia.

If you want to say hello, email me.
