Chris Alcantara

I'm a graphics reporter at The Washington Post, where I tell visual stories with text, maps and data visualizations.

Previously, I was an interactive news developer at the Miami Herald, where I contributed code and data reporting to stories about prison abuse, public transportation and corrupt police officers.

I've also interned at The Palm Beach Post and The Gainesville Sun, where I've written about hit-and-run fatalities and sex sting operations.

I studied journalism at the University of Florida. I got my start in news working at The Independent Florida Alligator, covering everything from local politics to a monthslong murder case.

Outside or work, I enjoy reading, live music and the occasional role-playing game. You can find me on Twitter.
