SPEEDING TICKETS BY JURISDICTION 2006
This map shows the distribution of speeding tickets in Maryland by range of miles-per-hour over the limit. The pattern varies county-by-county.


BRAC SECTION FRONT
In preparation for the influx of military workers coming to Maryland during the upcoming base realignment, we wanted to prepare a page that explained the process, informed readers of current developments and provided resources for those moving to the area. I designed the BRAC page and the flash graphic in the center of the page, which includes a map of affected bases, quotes from area officials and a timeline of BRAC events. I used archived articles to write all the text for the map portion.


FEATURED COVERAGE SECTION FRONT
A section for special coverage was created during a site redesign in the summer of 2007 and I was assigned to create a page that incorporated unique, compelling stories, in-depth and continuous coverage, multimedia, including photography, audio and interactive, and regular features.


HOME SALES MAP
Using home sales data compiled by a real estate reporter, I created one of two maps that analyzed year-over-year price changes by zip code.


TIMELINE: ART MODELL
This timeline about the life of Art Modell was created to top a gallery of stories about the former Ravens owner. It was one of several timelines that were created using a timeline template that I created in Flash.

RAVENS FOOTBALL CARDS
I designed this new take on traditional football cards as a fun way to let Ravens fans check up on their favorite players.

HURRICANE AGNES: 35 YEARS LATER
In preparation for hurricane season, I suggested a retrospective about the impact of past hurricanes in Maryland. My supervisor suggested an anniversary piece about Hurricane Agnes. The photo desk provided archived photos and I went to Ellicott City to photograph locations that were seen in the archived images. Then I created this piece about the event.


ORIOLES OPENING DAY VIDEO
I shot and edited this video about fans attending the season opener at Camden Yards.

If you’re wondering what’s been up as of late, I’d direct you to my del.icio.us links, which is where all my fun internet finds have been been saved. My user i.d. is katdowns.

Right now I’m listening to: Hot Hot Heat, Andrew Bird, and Metric.

Movies I liked: Jesus Camp, Blood Diamond. A movie I didn’t like: Because I Said So.

I also really liked the book “I Am Charlotte Simmons” by Tom Wolfe.
