@SofterStreets hello softer streets, I am starting a non profit with your namesake. I am hoping to snatch this handle off you if you weren't using it? Would you be happy to delete your account? I would very much appreciate it!

What was your first job as a journalist?

A freelance reporter at WIN news in Canberra. I pinched myself every day I was asked to come in.

How is social media changing news?

Crowd sourcing stories has never been easier, but I believe disseminating our content increases our TV brand, rather than detracts from it.

What does it mean to be a journalist?

I'm idealistic about this. I believe we act as the forth estate, I believe we are watchdogs, humanitarians and propagators of truth.
