It seems that I've always known what I wanted to do for a living, until the media landscape made it so I didn't.

But I have persevered. Some of the careers I've had along the way include columnist, editor, page designer, makeup editor, recapper, etc. In newspapers, if you name it, I've done it.

What was your first job as a journalist?

I contributed to a gossip column.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

Yes, and I miss it. I liked the finality of striking the keys. When you write using a typewriter, you have to really mean it. And I did.

Who's your favorite fictional journalist?

Trish Tilby ... or Brenda Starr. I can never decide. Lois Lane is a bully.
