Interview

What was your first job as a journalist?

Covered prep sports for The Outlook, a weekly newspaper in La Cañada Flintridge, Calif., after graduating from high school. Learned by doing.

How do you prefer to be pitched on stories?

Through a personalized email. Some detail, though not wordy. Just tell me why it matters and why people should/will care.
