I'm happy to say that I am now a data reporter at The Oregonian. I primarily write about issues related to crime and justice. I also sometimes help cover breaking news, most recently the occupation of a wildlife refuge in eastern Oregon.
Before joining The Oregonian, I was the data reporter on the investigative team at the Arizona Daily Star where I worked on State of Confusion, about Arizona's immigration law, SB 1070. As a result of our finding that few agencies were tracking their compliance, several departments have changed their data-collection policies and practices.
Thanks for visiting!
