Immigration Uncovered

Showcasing the work of 20 American and Latin American journalists reporting on migration in Central America. The page had to emphasize the teamwork between pairs of reporters from different countries. Stories in both languages are displayed side-by-side, and each reporters bio features prominent links to the reporters they worked with. Apparently simple on the surface, custom query algorithms are operating behind the scenes of this site to take into account the numerous different pairings of reporters and bylines over the course of this two year reporting project.

As well as the design, I also generated stories, conducted pre-interviews, recruited, mentored and edited the work of the Spanish-speaking journalists and helped place their work in top tier media across the continent. Our team in Honduras won a Peabody for their look at the connection between violence and migration.

His work took him into a minefield, a gunfight, a dugout canoe and the homes of many fascinating, brave and generous people. He is also an avid teacher and has led classes in radio, robotics, soccer, physics and anthropology in a diversity of places, including office towers, lecture halls, fields and palm thatched huts.
