Hi, I’m Anthony. I’m a longtime journalist who’s combined data analysis, product development, storytelling and coding for much of my career.

Since 2018, I’ve been a data news editor for The Wall Street Journal, focusing on trade, the economy, demographics, and tracking Covid-19.

My book, Practical SQL: A Beginner’s Guide to Storytelling with Data, was published in 2018 by No Starch Press.

Previously, I held product and journalism roles at USA Today, Questex, the Poughkeepsie Journal, and the DocumentCloud project for Investigative Reporters and Editors. I started my career in radio, at WEOK-AM and WPDH-FM in Poughkeepsie.

I’ve been fortunate to receive multiple honors, including a prestigious Silver Baton from the Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Awards.

I’m fond of my time at Marist College and Dutchess Community College.
