What was your first job as a journalist?

It was a work placement at my local newspaper. I sent them a letter asking if I could come in once a week to count as a school "subject".

Have you ever used a typewriter?

Not that I can recall.

Who's your favorite fictional journalist?

Zoe Barnes. Not that I approve of her methods of course...
