Have you ever used a typewriter?
Yes, my grandfather's. I admire the early days of journalism, just your mind, the phone (if lucky), paper and ink.
How do you prefer to be pitched on stories?
Know the area. I love having stories dropped in my lap, but I work for a hyper-localized paper and my readers care about their backyard.
What tools and software do you use to do your job?
Twitter, Facebook, the phonebook, Google, computer, Adobe products, iMovie, Audacity.
