One of the big projects we tackled at VPAP in 2020 is Virginia's redistricting process. With a Redistricting Commission in charge of trying to create new districts, we've been able to visualize and help people make sense of draft plans. I built the front-end code for the maps and charts in this multi-page web application.

In my role as a visual developer, I'm primarily tasked with building front-end interactive graphics to help people understand Virginia politics and government. To that end, I built most of the front-end code and pieces of the back-end code for VPAP's redistricting app. I also built most of the code for displaying the live results of the 2020 Republican Convention. Beyond working on larger-scale projects, I've frequently created one-off data visualizations. And I've created tools in the form of a small web app and a Svelte component library to reduce the amount of boilerplate I have to write.
