As with design, writing permeates much of what I do, from legal argument to scripting instructional videos. Consequently, exploring this site offers a pretty good survey of my writing. That being said, I have put together a cross-section of my work below.

The story of how I used Virginia court cases to discover what best predicts defendant outcomes: race or income.
Hackathon's aren't just for Silicon Valley. Lawyers, from public defender's to BigLaw, benefit, too.
Sometimes funny, sometimes helpful, always flow charts. Wait, that would make a great Venn Diagram... New chart every Sunday morning.
My first byline, Moving Targets is a Hot Science piece I wrote while interning for NOVA Online, the companion site to PBS's NOVA. It explains how to measure the radial velocities of stars.
