Welcome to cmcdonald.com!

I'm the Online Projects and Data Editor at the Austin American-Statesman. I've worked at four different newspapers in the Cox Media Group, and I've been working in the online space since 2001, when I started statesman.com.

I'm also a lecturer at the University of Texas, teaching Data-Driven Reporting and Data Visualization.

I'm a founding member of ONA Austin and the Austin chapter of Hacks/Hackers, and I help out on the Tableau Public Advisory Board.

When my kids were younger, I was heavily involved with Boy Scout units Troop 448 and Team 448, chartered by the Knights of Columbus out of St. Catherine of Siena Catholic Church. I'm Wood Badge trained and have served on staff twice.

I have two teenage sons and the best wife in the world.

Life couldn't be better.
