What was your first job as a journalist?

I covered four small towns when I first started working for the Journal Inquirer in Manchester, Conn. in 2007. Lots and lots of meetings.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

How do you prefer to be pitched on stories?

I prefer concise pitches that can somehow tie into a larger trend. I hate buzzwords like "innovative." Show, don't tell.
