Have you ever used a typewriter?


What's your favorite social network?

Twitter. It's so great to be able to interact with people around the world. And I see some of the most interesting stories on there.

Did you work for your high school newspaper? If so, what did you do there?

Sure did. I was a features writer and then a features editor. Also got to work on design.
