What was your first job as a journalist?

My first paying job was for a paper called The Villages Daily Sun in central Florida. My first gig was with my college newspaper.

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

Most of my work involves a notebook, a pen, a car, and a good pair of shoes. I write stories in a program called DTI.
