Mayra Báez Jimeno

Bogotá, Colombia

Visual thinker and storyteller currently experimenting with digital narratives, data visualization and news innovation at the heart of the new generation of storytellers.

Originally a political and social scientist, found my way in the world of news to tell stories that change our world. Previously coordinated the crafting and launching of the first data visualization based biodiversity outlook for Colombia while experimenting with data visualization, data journalism, and app development as part of gamechanging teams in the areas of environment, climate change, science and public open data.

Open data activist, programming newbie, social media extra-savvy.
