Dan Nguyen

I’m a developer/journalist for ProPublica, a non-profit investigative news organization based in Manhattan. It’s a job where I’m lucky to get to exercise my journalism, programming, design and photography interests. In my spare time, I like trying out pho joints. My career, besides a summer roof construction job, has mostly been as a reporter and web developer at metro newspapers. My skill set includes Ruby on Rails, PHP, Flash/Actionscript, HTML/CSS/JS, long-form article and essay writing, database analysis, photography, and photo post-processing. My photo kit consists of a Canon 5d Mark II and the 24-70L, 70-200L, and 85 1.2L lenses, plus a bunch of strobes and basic light stand setup. I also use a S90 for random street/party shots.
