I’m Dan. 🎉 I’m a developer with a strong interest in data visualization, design, and journalism.
I’m currently working as web developer and data visualization engineer at McKinsey, where I make graphics and interactives for readers at McKinsey.com.
Previously, I worked as a 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 Visualization from Northeastern University and a B.A. in Government from Cornell.
