I'm @mtdukes

Here's some stuff I've got cooking.

I'm an investigative reporter at The News & Observer in Raleigh, N.C., where I specialize in data and public records. I also teach courses on data journalism at the DeWitt Wallace Center for Media & Democracy at Duke University's Sanford School of Public Policy. In 2017, I completed a Nieman Fellowship at Harvard University.

Prior to joining the N&O, I worked as an investigative reporter at WRAL and was the managing editor for the Duke University Reporters’ Lab, a research project aimed at reducing the costs of investigative reporting. I've taught class at the UNC-Chapel Hill's journalism school, trained student reporters as an adviser to N.C. State University's daily newspaper and worked as a Web editor for a 24/7 local cable news channel.

I like great sentences, mediocre code and bad coffee.
