What was your first job as a journalist?

General assignment reporter for The Northern Virginia Daily in Strasburg, Va. Wrote stories during the day, often designed pages at night.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

Yes, in high school typing class (which anyone who wants to be a writer should take). I don't think I seriously used one before or since.

How is social media changing news?

Everything moves so much faster now.
