Storytellers.  At the end of the day, that is the heart of what journalists are.  We look at a situation and figure out how to best present it in a coherent, creative way.  It’s a public duty, but I think for the most part people forget that it’s an art.

There is something beautiful and interesting about the way a journalist puts a story together.  There’s a talent involved, whether it's for print or broadcast; it’s putting together the pieces of a puzzle. Researching, learning, arranging, rewriting and reorganizing until the perfect flow is mastered and the story is told in the best possible way.

For me, everyday is a new topic to explore, research and to gain new perspectives through interviews. I always want to learn more but most importantly, I just want to tell stories.
