Hello, I'm Alvin.
I make data visualizations at the Boston Globe. Previously, I wrote for ESPN Insider, focusing on hockey metrics and what they tell us about greater trends. I've also reported on presidential election, local scandals, suicides, sweatshops, pit bulls and speaking in tongues.
At NYU's student newspaper, I was the editor-in-chief (2007) as well as an award-winning columnist.
I was born in Kansas, only a few steps from the legendary Allen Fieldhouse. I once played jazz piano. I tinker with watches. I consider myself a writer. I want to humanize technology.E-mail: email@example.com
