When did you start freelancing?
I started full-time freelancing last summer, but I’ve been freelancing for the past four years while I was doing other full-time jobs.

Do you remember your first paid byline?
My first paid assignment was for artsy.net. It was about Diane Burko, who takes these aerial photographs of glaciers to show the effects of climate change. It was part of an edit test, and I was excited to see it posted.
