Elliot Bentley is part of a new breed of journalist-cum-coder”The Guardian

Hi. I like journalism, coding, design, data, biology, games, music, Japan and cats, especially when combined. Currently, I work as a Graphics Editor for The Wall Street Journal where I develop interactive graphics and newsroom tools (including Pinpoint and The Meta Tag Checker, which are both open source). I worked in the London office for two and a half years before transferring to the main office in New York.

I previously worked for S&S Media as an editor of technical publications JAXenter.com and Web & PHP Magazine. I was also part of student newspaper The Courier's award-winning editorial team while at Newcastle University.

In my spare time I run a meetup called Journocoders and work on oTranscribe, an open source web app. My previous side projects have included Hype Machine-listed music blog Quiff Pro Fro.

If you'd like to get in touch, email me or send me a message on Twitter.

At the Wall Street Journal, I have been producing (among other things) interactive graphics. Here are a few of my favourites.
