Drought, Museums and California Politics

So my new jobs puts in me in all sorts of exciting stories. As a digital content producer I don't have specific beat, instead I support the reporters to make sure they're work shines online.

Here are some pieces I've worked on I'm particularly happy with.

Drought

In case you haven't noticed, California is in a history drought. It rained this week, but after months of dry weather the welcomed wetness isn't enough to reverse the damage, yet. We put together a collection of drought related stories and I made a nifty graph to show where Folsom Lake is suppose to be and where it is this winter.


The drought is impacting ranchers as well, normally we'd have grown plenty of grass for livestock, this year, not so much. 


So those are my drought graphics. 

Museums


Tomorrow is free museum day! I had a lot of thoughts about this topic, I'll save them for a different post. I worked with Capital Public Radio's Bob Moffitt on this story, he wrote the story part, I did the map, chart, and, the part I'm most proud of, the lead.

"What sparks your interest? Art? Trains? History? Pharmacies? Public Utilities? Well, museums covering those topics and more are opening their doors to the public for free, this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m."

It's the little things, isn't it? Hey, this blog has always been a sort of brag book about what I'm doing at work. Even when I was unemployed and just dressed up and took pictures of myself for a month.


California Politics

I bet you were all on the edge of your seats during Jerry Brown's State of the State Address? Right? I bet you also had a hunch that former TARP (Troubled Asset Relief Program) rock-star, Neel Kashkari, was going to declare his bid for the California governors race... right?
Well, you might not be as wonky-nerdy as we are at CapRadio, but you might still enjoy this timeline I made outlining Kashkari's professional accomplishments.
