@derekwillis @cephillips @macloo @palewire To chime in, I think that's really important. Because it's hard to do really good data stories in 10-week spouts. And a lot of papers still don't have data internships, so finding them or students selling themselves for employers to create one can be intimidating.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

Yes. I actually own a typewriter given to me by my mother. Though data journalism requires technology, I'm a huge history nerd.

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

Python, JavaScript, D3, jQuery, ArcGIS, Excel, Access, SQL, Tableau and Adobe Illustrator

Why did you become a journalist?

I like the idea of having a different day every day. It's also important. It's our job to educate others on what's happening in the world.
