Hi, I'm Daniel, a British expat living the dream in New York. Currently, I'm a data reporter for FiveThirtyEight covering sports and anything else that comes my way. Before that, I interned with the good folks at Bloomberg Graphics. And before that I was the graphics editor for the one and only Columbia Missourian while completing my master's degree in data journalism/visualization at Mizzou. #MIZ

As a Brit that studied in the Midwest, it makes sense that I love weather. Specifically, I'm fascinated about climatology and mesoscale meteorology, or thunderstorms. If I'm not obsessing about tornadoes or sunsets, I'm frantically refreshing my for the latest news on the NBA (greatest league in the world).
