Sean McGoey

I'm an award-winning journalist based in Richmond, Virginia. Currently, I'm working as an editorial fellow at the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, where I am part of the reporting and data teams for ICIJ's Pandora Papers investigation. I also host, produce and edit the "Meet the Investigators" podcast and write stories on global corruption for ICIJ's website.

Prior to joining ICIJ, I received my master's degree in journalism from the University of Maryland's Philip Merrill College of Journalism, where I was chosen as as part of the Scripps Howard Foundation's inaugural Roy W. Howard Fellowship class. At UMD, I worked as a data and graphics reporter for Capital News Service covering education and the 2020 presidential election.

I've also run a website focused on high school sports for WWL-TV in my hometown of New Orleans and interned in product design and development at Gannett's D.C.-area headquarters.

My work has been published by The Washington Post, The Associated Press, The Diamondback, C-Ville Magazine, USA TODAY High School Sports and elsewhere. I'm also one of the hosts (and the producer/editor) of the It's Pretty OK podcast.
