During a POV/PBS hackathon, I co-created Data Docs, a platform that produces interactive charts from live data and integrates them into animations. I have produced multimedia components and foldable charts for on-stage performances in collaboration with my colleagues at Planet Money. I told stories about the 2011Japanese earthquake with panoramic images, interactive maps, animation and video.
Before coming to NPR, I spearheaded video operations for The Wall Street Journal in Asia. As the editorial lead for video content in the region, I worked with more than a dozen bureaus in the region to create both breaking news stories and enterprising multimedia projects. During my stint in Asia I reported on subjects ranging from China's property market to the North Korean shelling of the South Korean island Yeonpyeong to climate change issues in Vietnam's Mekong Delta.
At The Wall Street Journal I also started training print reporters in video production and have been teaching online journalism skills at conferences ever since. Most recently, I developed a basic data journalism course that I teach online at University of Massachusetts Amherst's journalism school.
