1) What is the problem you see in journalism today, and how do you try to remedy it in your own reporting?
2) Your style of reporting is to present raw footage. Why did you decide to create News2Share and style it in the way you have?
3) You film a lot of armed rallies. How do firearms intersect with activism?
4) When you are filming, you capture the good, the bad, and the ugly of humans intersecting with one another in times of heightened emotion and disagreement. No where do we see this more pronounced that when the disagreement is between a police officer and someone who is being ticketed or detained. What is your philosophy on filming police?
