Ani Lopez, Data Analysis & Visualization

You will find me at Twitter, Linkedin, Slideshare, and G+ 

I started coding html around the time, 1997, the Internet started to be something in Spain. Then, 2000, I learned XML, XSL, PHP and MYSql to code dynamic WAP ("the year of mobile" thay said!) and Web sites when popular CMSs like Drupal, Typepad, WordPress and such were in diapers or not yet born.

With some more years and experience under my belt I found myself managing web projects for agencies or my own clients. When I had enough of that, 2007, I jumped into de SEO wagon.

It seens I'm always looking for challenges so in September 2009 I moved to Vancouver, Canada where I joined VKI& Studios, a well known digital measurement agency tha became Cardinal Path later on by merging with two more agencies.

Although Enterprise and International SEO was my work most of my time there, analytics and visualization were taking over my professional heart and once more I burned some bridges to focus full time on those matters.

Finaly in September 2012 I moved to 1-800-GOT-JUNK?* where I have fun just doing Data Analysis and Visualization.

Somewhere at Manning Park, spring 2012

Before working on any internet related thing I studied Industrial Design and worked at Interior design an Architecture companies but soon I discovered that although I love art, design and architecture I was not made for it.

Besides that what I enjoy most is cooking for friends and family (I should have opened a restaurant, damn it!) as an excuse to have long conversations, sparked with good coffee and liquors, around a table.

Learning to be Canadian, embracing the local culture and, you know, ice skating, kayaking, snow shoeing, skate skiing, hiking and all that stuff crunching my lower back more that I would like to but also importing some fantastic mediterranean habits that are very welcome here at the Great White North.
