I’m Dan. 🎉 I’m a front-end engineer with a strong interest in data visualization, design, and interactive experiences that educate and inspire.
I’m currently working as a front-end engineer and data visualization developer at McKinsey, where I make explainers for readers at McKinsey.com.
Previously, I worked as a front-end engineer and graphics reporter at The Wall Street Journal, where I worked with coders, designers, and writers to visualize the news.
I have a M.F.A. in Information Design and Data Visualization from Northeastern University and a B.A. in Government from Cornell.
