More than 80 reporters from 26 countries sifted through up to 1,000 leaked documents and collaborated across borders to tell the Luxembourg Leaks story on multiple platforms.

The animation below, Luxembourg Leaks: Tricks of the Trade, produced in partnership with the Pulitzer Center, plays an important role in making the arcane accessible. My portfolio includes Apple, Caterpillar, Coca Cola and Amazon. Ugh. Of course I want to make money… but not this way.
