I'm a staff writer for the San Gabriel Valley Tribune and the Los Angeles News Group covering the cities of West Covina, Covina and La Puente and regional Los Angeles County news.

I covered general assignment news in a suburb outside of Cleveland, Ohio.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

I've poked a typewriter, but never used one to write anything substantial.
