Data Reporter

I'm a data reporter at the Tampa Bay Times, though I still think of it as the St. Pete Times. I've been doing this since the stone age of computer-assisted reporting when access to electronic records was limited, equipment was large and programs were slow. I've worked on investigative projects exploring zombie political campaigns, police shootings, teen car thieves, kids injured by guns, the resegregation of our schools, abuses at mental hospitals, outrageous ER trauma fees, America’s 50 Worst Charities, Florida’s Stand Your Ground law and missing military weapons. After the 2000 election, I was part of the data analysis group for a national media consortium that did an independent recount of votes in Florida.
