What was your first job as a journalist?

Working as an assistant editor at an expat rag in Saigon. Then I started freelancing on the side, writing travel stories about Vietnam.

How do you prefer to be pitched on stories?

What tools and software do you use to do your job?

HelloSign and Boomerang are two Gmail add-ons that I use almost daily - they save so much time.
