What was your first job as a journalist?

My first job as a journalist was in Wroclaw, a large city in Poland - I was an underpaid cub reporter on the city desk of Gazeta Wroclawska.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

When I was 15, my mother bought a typewriter at a yard sale. I used it in high school and in college. I still miss the sound of its keys.

Who's your favorite fictional journalist?

I love Tintin, the young reporter from the Belgian comic books by Herge. Tintin loves adventure and travels around the world to find it.
