Hello! My name is Ryan Murphy.

I am news apps lead developer at The Texas Tribune.

I'm responsible for the government salary database, the largest repository of payroll data for state employees in Texas. I wrote a scraper that collects reservoir level data from the state. I helped Texas citizens figure out what districts they are in. I mapped the location of every active fracking disposal well in Texas. I helped a team traveling down the Rio Grande track their progress and share their adventure with the world. (Read more about that on Source!) And some other stuff, too.

Say hello?
