Hello! I’m Emily and I make experimental visual stories for The Washington Post. This year, I’m spearheading a small team focused on telling immersive stories in augmented reality. Most recently, I won the Journalism 360 Challenge, a grant from Knight Foundation, Google News Lab and Online News Association for a project about unconsious bias.
Designing elegant and intuitive stories while pushing the boundaries of technology is my passion. I work on every step of a story's life cycle, from idea generation and design, to development and promotion. I love working on a team — sharing expertise and collaborating to tell better stories than we could as individuals. I also enjoy facilitating communication for large projects, leading brainstorming exercises and empowering teammates to try new story forms.
I studied graphic design, multimedia journalism and Spanish at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. In my spare time, you'll find me practicing yoga, baking or exploring my new home: Austin, Texas.
