Fellow journalist in recess here! I started off at The Michigan Daily and Benzinga and transitioned to tech (Fetchnotes, Occipital).

Things I miss:

  • The global view you get of the world — constantly I now find myself thinking “What? How did I miss this?” when reading

Things I don’t miss:

  • The pay

If you ever want to chat about the transition, give me a holler at alex@alexdschiff.com. I also think about whether or not I want to get back into the game all the time.



Product @Square. Prior: built Canvas @occipital, co-founder @Fetchnotes, VP @Benzinga, and chief opinionator @michigandaily.
