Interview

What was your first job as a journalist?

City Editor (Belfast) for www.myvillage.com

How do you prefer to be pitched on stories?

Email, Twitter or even in person. There's a lot to be said for a pint and a chat.

Did you work for your high school newspaper? If so, what did you do there?

I had a brief period as the 'go-to Jock' on my University magazine.
