I’m a news applications developer at the Chicago Tribune. Previously I’ve worked for the Boston Globe and boston.com, The New York Times Regional Media Group in Tampa, Fla., and I was once a reporter and news technologist for The St. Petersburg Times. Instead of writing about crime and breaking news, now I code.
My career’s touched a lot of areas: I’ve worked in radio, video, print and online. I’ve covered murders, elections, campaign finance, one alleged serial killer, cold cases, police shoot-outs, tornadoes that killed 181 people, a girl who sold lots of Girl Scout cookies and more. I’ve been interviewed on radio, television and in print. I’ve given talks and taught workshops at different conferences, including the Online News Association and the National Institute for Computer-Assisted Reporting.
In my free time I attempt stand-up comedy and improv.
