Paul Butler


I'm a quant in New York City. I love running, sailing, and exploring new cities.

I'm excited about tools to explore, explain, and persuade. I create interactive reports on ranked-ballot election results at I created Treeverse, a browser extension for exploring branching conversations. I've developed interactive essays on the Mandelbrot Fractal, how to size bets, and the mathematical nuance of American elections. I've written code notebooks for forensic video analysis, Lindenmayer fractals, optimizing pen-plot routes, and generating pseudo-3D line graphics. I think computers are bicycles for the mind and we're still in the penny-farthing era.
