I'm a Midwest native living in the South, covering coastal environmental issues and the governments of three beach towns. I like long-form narrative journalism, blogging, meeting deadlines, compound modifiers and asking good questions. I dislike rye bread. A lot.

@bengoodfella It helps me to remember that it’s “defuse” like a bomb. “Diffuse” is a word, just means something else.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

I collect vintage typewriters. I have four of them in my house right now. I would not like to use them on deadline.

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

MediaDesk/InDesign, Microsoft Word, Sharpie pens, a landline, an iPhone, coffee, a series of disheveled notebooks and a LOT of nosiness.

What's your favorite social network?

Twitter! I find it easier to engage in constructive dialogue there than on Facebook.
