Biography

I'm a breaking news reporter at the Richmond Times-Dispatch, the daily newspaper serving Virginia's capital and beyond. I'm also on the mass communications faculty at Virginia Commonwealth University. A transplanted Midwesterner, my passions are my family, music and the St. Louis Cardinals.

What was your first job as a journalist?

Selling ads for my grade-school newspaper. It was mimeographed -- for those of you who remember those machines.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

Yes. I once worked at a small weekly and typed all my copy on an ancient manual typewriter with keys that stuck.

How is social media changing news?

By tearing down the walls between news organizations and the public. We're having more conversations with people, getting different views.
