Gabe focuses on the intersection between media and programming. He is a Product Manager at Upworthy, in charge of the CMS and internal tooling. Before that, he worked as hybrid developer/reporter at Fast Company, where he built editorial tools and wrote about media, technology and programming.
His research at the Tow Center is to build a programming language that teaches journalists core programming concepts while making it easier for beginners to work on data-driven stories. The project also hopes to expand the industry’s notion of what constitutes data journalism by helping journalists think of anything that can be represented by a computer as data, allowing them to find and tell better and more complete stories.
