@NewSanctuaryNYC @judsonchurchnyc Hello, I'm a video producer at NYT and have been following Ravi's story. Could I have permission to use the videos on your Vimeo (with on-screen credit of course) if we do a follow-up piece? Take care & feel free to DM me.

What was your first job as a journalist?

Multimedia reporter covering breaking news. Basically, Nightcrawler was my autobiography.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

Nope, but I have earrings made from typewriter keys (millennial alert). So that's basically the same thing, right?

How is social media changing news?

How isn't social media changing news? I mean, now my entire job is producing news that will be exclusively consumed on social!
