Chris Alcantara

I'm a graphics reporter at The Washington Post, where I use data and code to tell visual stories.

Previously, I was an interactive news developer at the Miami Herald. I worked on projects about prison abuse, a corrupt police task force, public transportation and South Florida's housing market.

I've also had bylines at The Palm Beach Post and The Gainesville Sun.

I'm a University of Florida alumnus and got my start in journalism working at The Independent Florida Alligator.

I enjoy reading, live music, cycling, computer programming and the occasional role-playing game.

You can find me on Twitter or you can email me.
