Source, Package, Market, and Deliver Your Own Meal Kit
A game about Blue Apron!
My favorite collaborator Jess Kuronen and I got to work with the talented Hanna Sender to talk about how meal kit companies are a logistical nightmare. In this text-based game, readers can make choices that ultimately end up in further complications. Turns out food is really hard to ship!

America Didn’t Make the World Cup. So Which World Cup Country Is the Most American?
The World Cup is typically a time for newsrooms to wonder, “How can we get Americans interested in this event that we can actually plan for?”

- Press freedom
- McDonald’s locations per capita
- Military spending
- Oil production

WSJ Graphics Homepage
The Wall Street Journal’s Graphics team needed a place to put their work on display. They needed to show the most projects and to highlight significant projects that might be less recent.
With help from Jessia Ma and Dov Friedman, we built a little homepage!
