- Visuals Editor
As Visuals Editor for Vox, Kainaz runs an interdisciplinary team specializing in graphics, interactives, photography and design. Before coming to Vox, she was an editor on NPR’s Visual Team, where she was part of an award-winning team of journalists whose web documentary, “Planet Money Makes A T-shirt,” was recognized for digital innovation by the News & Documentary Emmys, the Alfred I. duPont-Columbia Award, the Scripps Howard Foundation and Pictures of the Year International.
Before all the desk jobs she was a freelance photojournalist based in Mumbai, India. Her clients included The New York Times, Vogue India and Reuters. Prior to that, she worked for the St. Petersburg Times in Florida. In 2010 she was a Fulbright Scholar and completed a short film on the Parsi Zoroastrian community in Mumbai.
She spends most of her time thinking about how to make smart, audience-centric visual stories that matter. And how to create and sustain a safe and inclusive environment for journalists to be able to tell those stories.
