Adjunct Instructor of Journalism and Public Policy

Senior Editor, The New York Times, Interactive News desk



Sanford 137



I am a Senior Editor at The New York Times on the Interactive News desk. Our group is one of the oldest of its kind and has a storied history. I specialize in elections, campaign finance and the Supreme Court.

Previously, I was a news applications developer for NPR on the news applications team. Most of that code is available for your perusal on GitHub, because I like to show my work.

Before NPR, I worked at the Washington Post in Washington, D.C. I built a handful of APIs and some news applications. I even got to help predict an election.

Before the Post, I worked at the St. Petersburg Times in Florida. I contributed code to the Pulitzer Prize-winning PolitiFact, a data-driven mug shots site and a high-school sports site. They have since taken it down.

I write about food on Twitter and code socially on GitHub. Additionally, I track the wines I drink for amusement.
