Have you ever used a typewriter?
Yes. I once owned a 1928 Underwood manual typewriter.
Who's your favorite fictional journalist?
John Watson from Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. I grew up on those stories, and found John to be the perfect writer/storyteller/analyst mix.
How do you prefer to be pitched on stories?
The best pitches give me content to use -- quotes, insights, data for just-breaking stories requiring fast interviews/analysis.
