VT politics and government reporter for @bfp_news. Vermonter. Say hello: 802-660-1863

What was your first job as a journalist?

I took a job as a copy editor at my college's student newspaper with no intention of becoming a journalist. I just liked fixing errors!

What does it mean to be a journalist?

Helping a community to understand itself more fully, empowering citizens to engage in democracy, and telling true, worthwhile stories.

What tools and software do you use to do your job?

My iPhone is my most indispensable tool -- it's the way I access Twitter and email most often, and I also use it for photos, video and audio.
