I'm a data journalist. In the summer of 2015 I was a Google Journalism Fellow at PRI's The World before joining the newsroom full-time.
I’m also a former fellow at Tow-Knight Center for Entrepreneurial Journalism and the founder of DataN, a customizable and affordable training package for small newsrooms with limited resources to produce data journalism.

I have interned with NBC Local Media to produce data and visual components. I was also a data visualization consultant at Foreign Policy.
