Teach to a philosophy that all visual sequential projects regardless of technique or media, ranging from comics to photography, animation or video, can benefit from a focus on narrative theory and pattern recognition.

Editorial Infographics | Back
From 2016-2020, I regularly distilled down information and complex stories into charts, photographs, diagrams, maps and illustrations for use within articles or as stand-alone graphics for Major League Baseball's website, MLB.com. Graphics were also often used for social media, and occasionally for broadcast or print. I was also responsible for research, project management and sourcing of the graphics if I was not producing them myself. I collaborated with editors, producers, statisticians, and staff reporters to translate history, rankings and trades into visual aids. These graphics were developed from concept through to production, both independently and in teams, and successfully upped engagement across MLB digital channels.
