About

I am a data nerd passionate about communicating complex, important information through visuals and statistics. I work as a data journalist at Bloomberg News, where I focus on interactive and visual storytelling.

Previously, I worked at the Urban Institute as a researcher and a data visualization developer. Before that, I analyzed stroke treatment data at the University of Rochester Medical Center. I graduated from the University of Rochester with a bachelor's degree in mathematics and statistics, a minor in epidemiology, and a love of six month winters.
