During my time with the Columbia Missourian, KOMU-TV and KBIA Sports Extra, I've created numerous infographics for print and online. Below are a few of my favorites, beginning with the most recent. You can view a comprehensive list of all of my infographics work here.
I also manage a sports-themed infographics blog in my spare time, and contribute to the renowned baseball blog Beyond the Box Score as well. Feel free to check out my work for both of those sites by following the links.
