I’d like to share some exciting news as 2014 is shaping up to be a year for change. Several promising opportunities have presented themselves that speak directly to my journalism and interactive storytelling roots. So, I’m leaving Second Story to pursue another “adjacent possible.” I appreciate the time at the interactive studio and the opportunity to work alongside a talented, driven, hard-working and interdisciplinary team.
I, or rather, we’ll be revealing the next act in the coming weeks.
In the meantime, if you have opportunities to collaborate or a story you’d love to tell in innovative and engaging ways, I’d love to hear from you. Or if you want to get an early preview of what we’re working on, please do drop me a line.

Professors, We Need You! -
This culture of exclusivity is then transmitted to the next generation through the publish-or-perish tenure process. Rebels are too often crushed or driven away.
Some truths in Kristof.
In defense of unicorns -
But reflexively shunting these students into templated roles cheats them out of a broader journalistic experience, which hurts both them and the field as a whole.
The bigger the org, the more difficult this can be.
