Slate, 4/3/2012Slates Friday News Quiz, written by Ken Jennings, has been running since 2012. The quiz pits you against a Slate writer or a celebrity. It also stores the scores of logged-in users and shows the average score. I also built an editorial tool to construct the quiz.
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, 12/12/2011This interactive features videos and photos from Post-Gazette photographers in a feature about the famous Pittsburgh photographer, Charles 'Teenie' Harris. The piece includes video interviews with some of Teenie's former subjects, as well as Teenie's photos of them and modern photos of them. I designed the entire Web presentation of the project, including a feature by which the videos tour the user through the slideshows.
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, 11/14/2011This interactive is a chronology of the Penn State scandal with events that the user can filter by the people involved in the scandal. I based the information on the reporting of Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reporters as well as a grand jury presentment. I alone conceptualized and programmed the interactive. I also wrote the copy for each event and selected all the photos. I ensured that the interactive could be easily repurposed for future projects and updated regularly by the Post-Gazette's interactives editor. This interactive uses jQuery, PHP and XML.
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, 12/5/2011This interactive illustrates how tax brackets and rates have changed since the government instituted the federal income tax in 1913. I was responsible for desinging and coding the interactive as well as finding the data. The interactive uses jQuery and PHP.
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, 11/14/2011This interactive simulates a study of perceptions of the U.S.'s wealth distribution. It asks users what they think the wealth distribution of the country is, what they think it should be, and then reveals what the actual distribution of wealth is, as well as how other users of the interactive and subjects of the study answered. The interactive uses jQuery and PHP. It also uses SQL to store and retrieve user data.
