I'm a web producer for Digital First Media's Project Thunderdome.

I like selecting and creating beautiful web content.

What was your first job as a journalist?

Working at WMNF 88.5 FM Tampa, where I was handed a microphone, notepad, computer with Audacity and told to go out.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

Yep, as a teenager I had several typewriters. I loved the way they sounded.

How is social media changing news?

It allows us to interact directly with our audience, monitor reaction, immediately know the latest news (and who has it) and crowd-source.
