Immigration Uncovered

Showcasing the work of 20 American and Latin American journalists reporting on migration in Central America. A central feature of the project was the partnerships between local and US journalists, and the page had to emphasize this alongside the subject matter of the series itself. Stories in both languages are displayed side-by-side, and each reporter's bio features prominent links to the reporters they worked with, photos of the journalists in the field together and quotes from them about the experience of working with a partner. Apparently simple on the surface, custom queries operate behind the scenes to take into account the numerous different pairings of reporters and bylines. Unlike many news sites, which are ordered chronologically, none of our stories was time sensitive. Rather, they covered unusual and varied aspects of migration. To bring out this varied nature, the photo collage of the front is randomized. No two visits to the page look alike.

Hello. I'm a journalist, radio producer and teacher. I've worked in Latin America and the Caribbean for most of my career. My work has taken me across a minefield, into a gunfight, paddling a dugout canoe and inside the homes of many brave and generous people. I have also produced several major international reporting projects where a large part of my job was recruiting and mentoring local reporters. I love teaching, and besides journalism, I have taught soccer, robotics, anthropology and English.
