What was your first job as a journalist?

I worked as an editorial copy clerk and was promoted to a copy editor at my hometown paper in Stockton, Ca.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

Yes. I received a typewriter as a birthday gift for my senior year of high school. I used it in college as well.

How is social media changing news?

One word: Speed. People are getting the news faster than ever before. The major down side: Misinformation is just as fast, maybe faster.
