What does it mean to be a journalist?

It means you have a front-row seat to life, and it's your responsibility to tell people what you see.

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

An iMac, InCopy, an iPad and Bluetooth keyboard for field interviews, a Canon EOS Rebel T2i, red pens and my bad-ass street skillz.
