Words are my first love (not counting, y’know, my kids and such), but I enjoy telling stories through lots of media. Sometimes that means learning them on my own, more often it means collaborating with designers, photographers, and videographers.

Projects and experiments I’ve led:

  • Designing and launching outreach newsletters at the Simpson Center for the Humanities
  • Nature Nearby: an interactive map
  • The psychology of climate change: A cartoon guide
  • Occasional photography, and much more selecting photos for tone and impact
  • Video: Humanitarian Jihad
  • Redesigning static web pages informed by analytics
  • Various radio appearances as a climate-change reporter
  • Twitter, Facebook, and other social media for source-finding, promoting work, and crowd-testing ideas (@jhiskes)
