As a freelancer, I pride myself on being able to tackle assignments in a variety of areas, but always bring my own unique perspective. Currently, I write about personal finance, careers, and productivity from a Millenial/Gen Y perspective.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

Yes. I loved it. One of my mom's friends had a vintage one that I used to play with. I definitely will invest in one later on.

How is social media changing news?

Everything is in realtime and dynamic. You do not have to wait to learn, you just have to engage with the community.

Who's your favorite fictional journalist?

Augustus Haynes from The Wire.
