Covers:  I freelance so I can write on many things, so try me. But lately: tech, women's interest, movies/tv, NASA, public affairs/national interest, Kentucky, language/translation, the Great American Eclipse.
Doesn't Cover: Since I freelance, I'm not restricted to set areas. If it's something I don't normally write on, you may have to explain why I should. But I'll still listen to see if a story's there.

What was your first job as a journalist?

Unpaid? Middle school paper. Paid? Producer for special projects at an independent tv station in rural Kentucky.

Have you ever used a typewriter?


How do you prefer to be pitched on stories?

Things that matter. Your startup existing isn't news. Link what you do to the zeitgeist--how does it relate to current or larger issues?
