What was your first job as a journalist?

I worked for my college newspaper, usually covering chapel talks & concerts, before interning in public TV, then a paid job in public radio.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

Yes, but not for work. I'm enough of a journalism and literature romantic to think typewriters are kind of great.

Who's your favorite fictional journalist?

Clark Kent. He could conquer the world as Superman, but chooses to do the right thing in his civilian life, keeping the public informed.
