About Me



I'm a reporter and data journalist based in Los Angeles.


News.

I'm a reporter with 15 years of experience writing about politics, criminal justice and foreign affairs. Until recently, I covered North and South Korea for the Los Angeles Times, where I now cover L.A. County government.


Read my stories.


Nerd.

I also enjoy writing code, analyzing data and building data visualizations. In 2012, I founded The Daily Viz — a digital sketchpad for creating and curating charts, maps, graphs and other data stories.
