What was your first job as a journalist?
I started working in student journalism in 7th grade. My first professional gig was when I was 19 and interned at a magazine in London.
Have you ever used a typewriter?
I'm probably one of the last kids to grow up on one. My dad was a professor, and I'd write stories on it when I was stuck in his office.
Did you work for your high school newspaper? If so, what did you do there?
Sure did. Lived in that newsroom through senior year, when I was editor-in-chief. I still credit my adviser for launching me into journalism
