What was your first job as a journalist?

Intern with the Hershey Chronicle in Hershey, Pa.

What does it mean to be a journalist?

For me, being curious, finding the story and telling it in a way that's equally intriguing to others.

How do you prefer to be pitched on stories?

Email works best, so I can keep track of things. If you tweet me, I'll ask you to email me.
