I found journalism by accident. I was taking general education classes at a junior college and not really sure what to focus on. I wound up taking a summer semester off and traveling around a bit and playing guitar. When I decided to return to school, I took a basic journalism class because while reading the New York Times and Rolling Stone one evening, it seemed like an interesting option to pursue. I took a basic journalism class at the Santa Rosa Junior College and was hooked. Needless to say, I found my calling.
