About me
Currently the Assistant Visuals Editor — a bit of a misnomer considering we don't have a Visuals Editor — for the Wisconsin State Journal. My primary area of focus is on information design for both print and online. I work on everything from simple maps and diagrams to run in the daily paper to extremely complex data visualizations for our website and everything in-between. I also illustrate, create logos and icons and fill the other visual story-telling needs for the paper. While not producing content, I manage the department and keep the machine well oiled.

I solve problems and communicate ideas.
