What does it mean to be a journalist?
Work hard and smart, try to rid yourself your pre-conceptions, always dig as deep as you can and don't take no for an answer.
How do you prefer to be pitched on stories?
Anytime, via email, phone, twitter or Skype.
What tools and software do you use to do your job?
Anything that makes my job quicker + easier, but nothing just for gadget's sake: iphone, laptop, voice recorder, SLR and Skype are essential.
