Data + Science + Political Journalism



I’m a New Mexico-based investigative journalist. I write stories and make videos about science, politics, and data. That means everything from in-depth investigations to quick day-turns.

To get the work done, I use a wide range of skills — videography, programming, data visualizations, interviewing, and record requesting.
