I’ll be kicking off my career with the Washington Post as a graphics editor, and I am absolutely thrilled.
In a few short months, I will be working alongside some of the world’s best journalists in a newsroom investing heavily in digital. It will be a great chance to grow my skills among a stellar team of visual thinkers, data crunchers and map makers.
Leaving the Star Tribune won’t be easy. Our team made great progress over the past year, exposing the newsroom to some of the possibilities data-driven journalism gives us. They truly are a great bunch, and I hope they got as much out of my experience there as I got out of working with them.
My role will begin part time in April from Minneapolis as I finish up my computer science degree. I’ll transition to full time when I move to Washington in early June.
All pro tips on living in the D.C. area are much appreciated.
