Have you ever used a typewriter?

Yes. My parents used to own one that I worked on before we bought our first computer, a Macintosh LCIII.

How is social media changing news?

News is more accessible to the masses, but that accessibility has also caused audiences to question what they read and where it comes from

What does it mean to be a journalist?

Being trusted to share a victim or suspect's story carries a ton of responsibility. One must be balanced, skeptical, inquisitive, personable.

Awards

Phillip True Award

2010 - Online Impact
The result of internal voting, the online impact award went to the newsroom employee who made the biggest waves online. At the time, I was covering breaking public safety news five days a week, and I used Twitter, our crime team blog and our website to break news.
