ok, so what is a visual journalist? do i design pages? nope. take pictures? nope.
make infographics or do data visualization? well, yes... but there's more!
essentially, my brand of visual journalism is a strange and wonderful mix of left-
brain/right-brain storytelling. i spent 15 years at the new york times where i was
trained to report the story from the ground up, find the visual language to
translate it, then write, chart, draw, edit and produce information graphics. as a
graphics editor i've run teams, managed big data projects, worked as an art
director, an editor, a reporter, a writer, producer, designer and evangelist for
news and infographics in all their various forms — from analogue to digital.
