What was your first job as a journalist?
My first job was as an intern with the Madisonville Messenger. Small-town papers are excellent training because you have to do everything.
Who's your favorite fictional journalist?
I love Michael Keaton's Henry Hackett in "The Paper."
What does it mean to be a journalist?
It means I get to be one of the first people to learn about things. I'm competitive that way. :)
