Langston Taylor - Data Editor

Data Editor

I write words. Sometimes they're in code. I'm a Maryland native who first worked at the Times as a reporting intern in 2016. Now, my job is to dive into data to find news affecting Tampa Bay or all of Florida. That could mean following money or counting followers. I also build tools that make data and documents easier for our readers to understand. I'm on my phone too much, and you can @ me any time with story ideas or NBA highlight tapes.
