What was your first job as a journalist?

If you don't count my high school newsletter, my first published story was in The Duquesne Duke while in college at Duquesne University.

What tools and software do you use to do your job?

The iPhone has become an invaluable tool in recent years, as has Excel in this data-driven world.

Why did you become a journalist?

I want to learn about something new, meet new people and do something different every day! Standing still is not a career option for me!
