About

My work lies at the intersection of visual storytelling and social impact: how can we use data visualization and information design to make the world a better place?

Toward this end, I build tools and write stories that make local government more accessible, catalyze civic participation, and empower citizens to be involved in their communities.

Work Experience

2020 — Now
Houston, TX

Building the next great data visualization studio. We tell visual stories on the web to amplify social impact.

I produced engaging data visualizations to accompany news stories for Axios. I used languages such as Svelte & D3, tools such as Datawrapper, and software such as Adobe Illustrator to create customized, interactive graphics for Axios journalists. More: muckrack.com/connor-rothsch…

2020 — 2021
Houston, TX

I spent my senior year collaborating with the US Department of Labor's Wage and Hour Division to research how COVID-19 is affecting low-wage workers in Houston. We met regularly with government partners on the federal, state, and regional level to provide robust insights for the WHD team.

2020 — 2020
Tampa, FL

Through a fellowship with Coding It Forward, I worked as one of two interns in USSOCOM's inaugural data internship program. In six weeks, I built a fullstack web application that automates the process of verifying inventory data. This tool is expected to save roughly 2,500 man hours and $102,000 annually.

2018 — 2020
Houston, TX

I created data visualizations, static reports, and interactive data dashboards for government partners. My work reached a variety of government partners including the Texas Juvenile Justice Department, the Texas Department of Family Protective Services, and the Texas Department of Criminal Justice.
