@heatherciras she literally keeps saying, "mommy, don't ever let me watch that troll movie again" as if admonishing me for poor parenting
Why didn't anyone tell me that my 3-year-old would be traumatized by the Trolls movie? The trolls literally get *eaten* by scary ogres. I feel extremely misled you guys
@maura It’s like a high school cafeteria on warp speed

What was your first job as a journalist?

I worked for a little newspaper in Connecticut, covering the public education beat. I spent a lot of time at school board meetings.

How do you prefer to be pitched on stories?

Email is best. Short and sweet, please.

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

For print, it's just paper and pen and a tape recorder. For video, I edit packages using Final Cut Pro7.
