What interests you about journalism?
The opportunity to get out and talk to people with interesting experiences, and use my skills as a writer to share these with the rest of the rest of the world.

If you ruled the world, what would you change on day one?

I'd abolish the position of World Ruler.


What is an issue or topic you are passionate about?

Accuracy in reporting over an abstract notion of 'fairness' or 'balance.' For example, if I'm reporting on the Flat Earth Movement, I wouldn't try to portray both sides on the debate of the Earth's shape as being equally valid in the interest of balance, because that would hurt accuracy. We all know that science overwhelmingly supports one side, just like on the debate of climate change. Accuracy above all, including balance or fairness.
