Hi. I am Jake Steinberg, a writer, reporter and weekend cartographer. I'm currently working for Arizona Public Media, where I've covered the COVID-19 pandemic, the state's opioid crisis, economic development, transit, evictions, wildfires and more.
I'm passionate about data journalism, geographic storytelling and contemporary data visualization tools. My goal is to combine my love for cartography with my journalistic craft to explore issues I'm interested in: human impacts on the natural world; urban development and sustainability; and human and political geography.
In my free time, I like to go on long bike rides, chase the perfect brew of coffee and disconnect with excursions into the wilderness.
