How did you first get into your profession?
I’m a journalist by trade, with the curiosity to match. Language, both spoken and written, is one of mankind’s greatest achievements. It allows the transfer of thought across space and time, and ensuring its clarity as it’s communicated is vital to the progression of mankind. That’s what writers and editors do, and that’s how I wanted to contribute.
What is the best perk of your career?
I love to learn, which is why it’s no surprise that I’m a news junkie. In my line of work, knowledge is very important, since you end up having to write or edit content about all sorts of different topics. One of the products we sell is topic generation. Clients will ask us to come up with a certain amount of topics for their monthly blog campaigns, which we often end up writing as well. Because of news reading, coming up with article and blog topics is easy for me because I start seeing relevant ideas in magazine articles, newspaper stories and the latest industry columns or blogs. In essence, I get paid to read the news; how great is that?
