Alex Marga, editor of The Pick And The Pen

Hi There! My name is Alex Marga and I am the author of The Pick and the Pen.

I’m a college student at the University of Oregon, and I am a senior in the Journalism Department. I am currently studying magazine journalism and multimedia, and I write for online music magazine Northern Transmissions.

My interest in interviewing came when I was in middle school. I love meeting people and talking to them about their lives, especially people involved in the arts (artists/bands/musicians/photographers/writers/filmmakers and so on). I also love to write and have been writing since I was a child. So logically I fell into the journalism career, and I’ve been in love with it ever since! Some people I’ve interviewed in the past: Lane Smith, children’s book author/illustrator; Reed Fish, artist/writer/photographer; Chris Walla of Death Cab For Cutie; local Seattle band Speaker Speaker; Doug Benson, a famous comedian; and more.

When I’m not on campus, I live in a city near Seattle, WA. While I don’t go into the city every single day, I do find my way here and there.
