I'm a blogger, occasional feature writer, and real estate columnist for San Diego Reader magazine, and daylight as a used house salesman.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

I still have the old Smith-Corolla that I used to bang out stories when I was 5 or 6, and that sucker was old then.

How do you prefer to be pitched on stories?

E-mail. Please understand what you're pitching and I'll be glad to respond with why it will or won't work for me.

Why did you become a journalist?

For a hyper-local blog (obrag.org, now sandiegofreepress.org) - it was fun. Current gig - someone offered to pay me to have fun.
