Q & A

Whats the best thing to happen to you in your career to date?

Working for Myanmar's state-run newspaper during the general elections of 2015, which ended 50 years of military rule.

What does a typical work week look like for you?:

I work long hours and try to meet sources or acquaintances for coffee twice a week. It stops me from growing dusty!

Describe your working environment in a few sentences..

It's myself, my cat and my laptop staying snug as the weather grows chilly.

What sets you apart from other freelancers in your industry?

I think that I spent four years in Myanmar and three in Bangladesh, so I'm familiar with issues in developing countries and am experienced in finding stories in unusual settings.

What are the tools of your trade?

My laptop, my phone to record interview, my Kindle (for building my vocab) and my notebook.

Do you collaborate with others? If yes, how does that works?

I enjoy working with photographers on assignment.

Whats been the biggest freelancing lesson to date?

Cast your net widely.
