At the age of 23, I quit my full-time job as a mailman and enrolled at Harper Junior Community College, majoring in fine arts.
Although I didn’t know it at the time, I’ve always been interested in communication. I hadn’t even thought about going into journalism, however. Writing was the last thing I wanted to do; I hated English, there were too many rules that had no logic.
If I had any pick, I’d have been a musician.
