Scott Murray


I work with code, data, and computation to craft interactive experiences.

I’m interested in learning, teaching, design, visualization, art, and culture.

I am in the Learning Group at O’Reilly Media. Before that, I was an Assistant Professor of Design at USF, where I’m affiliated with the Visualization and Graphics Lab.

I contribute to Processing, and I wrote Interactive Data Visualization for the Web: An Introduction to Designing With D3.

I studied at MassArt’s Dynamic Media Institute (M.F.A. 2010) and Vassar College (A.B. 2001).

I live in Portland, Oregon.

The site was made mobile-friendly through a combination of CSS3 media queries and JavaScript.
