  • I’m the Senior editor for data at INSIDER! I work on cool stories and support the newsroom through data journalism. Things with my fingerprints on them can be found below.
  • In Spring of 2018, I launched my creator-owned daily morning newsletter Numlock News. It’s all about the cool numbers buried in the news. It’s funny and makes you smarter.
  • In my free time, I also write a column for Marvel, where about once per month we publish a fun “Marvel by the Numbers” data and comics story. I also predict the Oscars in the Numlock Awards Supplement, a seasonal pop-up spinoff of Numlock.
