I almost forgot to post this, but this was my first write-up! I’ve spent the past eight or nine years doing literally hundreds of interviews, so it was very cool to be on the other end of that process. Caroline Coughlin, a writer in SNC’s intro to journalism class, did the interview and article and I thought she did a very professional job. It was also really cool to contrast my expectations to what the interview actually entailed. I assumed there’d be more of a focus on the writing I’d done with Tahoe Quarterly and freelance, but it was much more far-reaching, going all the way back to my growing up in a university town and watching my mom’s job as a journalist.
Anyway, very fun, though for the record, my photo got stretched horizontally in the layout. I’m not really that wide!
