Hi! My name is Lorraine. I like to write and make digital things.
I dabble in the intersections of design, data, and storytelling. I co-founded Intersectional Analyst, a blog that deconstructs social issues through infographics and data visualizations. As a writer and (sometimes) comic-artist, I explore themes around my Chinese identity, family, growing up, and existing online. I tell stories about intergenerational grief and loneliness.
I currently write and design things at Powered by Data, an organization working with nonprofits and government to help them better use and share data. Prior to that, I helped organize OpenCon, a community focused on making scholarly and educational materials freely and openly available online. I also coordinated digital literacy programming for teens with Canada Learning Code.
In 2015-2016, I was a social innovation Studio [Y] Fellow at the MaRS Discovery District.
Want to work together on something? Say hi: lorrainechuen(at)gmail.com.
