What was your first job as a journalist?

Unpaid intern, totally broke in New York City. Everyone has to pay their dues, right?

Have you ever used a typewriter?

Absolutely! My mother used to bring one home from work when I was growing up, and I loved tap-tap-tapping stories out on paper with it.

What's your favorite social network?

Twitter, hands down.
