David Miller
Graphic Designer

I'm a student at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University. I love graphic design, photojournalism, and illustration photography. My photos have appeared in Jerk Magazine, The Syracuse Post-Standard, The Onion A.V. Club Chicago, and on Ralph Lauren's Rugby.com. Most recently I shot the The British Independent Film Awards, and the 17th Raindance Film Festival in London, UK for Raindance.tv. I was recently named the Society of News Design/Marshall Matlock student designer of 2009.

The numbers

National data from census.gov and cdc.gov

Right now, as our teams get further into their story reporting, we're seeing trends and understanding local information, but we need to be able to compare that to the bigger national picture.

Our newsroom

We're really fortunate to be working out here in Washington. Most journalists don't get the chance to spend 6 1/2 weeks embedded in a location, getting a true feeling for a region and its people.

Today, most of the Syracuse fellows are out reporting, taping, gathering source material, surveying the landscape, and otherwise doing what they do best. It's pretty cool to sit in our newsroom, situated on the western edge of a deep valley, surrounded by trees, mountains, horses and goats, and just absorb the natural beauty of this place we're able to report from.

Where are we?

Back to Vietnam

Justin and Juliette have been spending a lot of time with Jerry Middleton, a Vietnam veteran living in the woods outside of Chesaw, Washington. Years ago Jerry was an aspiring photographer, and during his time serving in Vietnam he shot hundreds of slide photographs.

Jerry was gracious enough to give us his slide projector, 8mm film projector, and boxes of slides and film reels to go through.
