Hello. I am a journalist who has spent his career exploring multimedia storytelling and information visualization. My career began at ABC News, where I made infographics and helped launch ABCNews4Kids. I was The New York Times’ first interactive graphics editor, founded its multimedia desk, and worked as the first web enterprise editor, before working as a video journalist. I developed tools for multimedia production, charts, and maps at both The Times and France’s Le Monde, and covered breaking news stories and feature stories as a multimedia journalist. I came to Stanford University as a JSK journalism fellow and produced the widely cited data visualization documentary Journalism in the Age of Data. While studying info vis, statistics, and cartography, I began collaborating with academics to explore fascinating topics in the humanities and social sciences. Through these collaborations, I began working between the worlds of academic research and explanatory journalism at Stanford’s Bill Lane Center for the American West.
