SHORT BIO

I'm a car nut and a transport nerd, so I cover trains, planes, autonomous automobiles and hyperloops for Marketplace.

What was your first job?

Making tea at a local radio station.

What do you think is the hardest part of your job that no one knows?

Elon Musk's Twitter feed.

What advice do you wish someone had given you before you started this career?

Try decaffeinated tea.

In your next life, what would your career be?

I'd be a vet for one of the first human settlements on Mars and a part-time astronaut fireman, because it's all hands on deck when you're on a new planet.

Fill in the blank: Money can’t buy you happiness but it can buy you ______.

Tea.

What’s something that you thought you knew but later found out you were wrong about?

How to pronounce the English language. Apparently it's not alumin-eee-um or renayyyysance.

 

What’s the favorite item in your workspace and why?

The tea kettle.
