Thanks for sharing! We don't often see articles about how established professionals became established, and I think it's important for newcomers to freelancing to understand how important it is to build relationships.

I love this!  This is how I started and I was thinking it was a lost art.  People watching YouTube Video tutorials and claiming to be colorists or even senior colorists right out of the gate.  The foundation that being an assistant colorist gives you is unparalleled.  Not only learning things from the ground up, but also those bonds you form with people which can propel you into the next level.  Its been the most incredible and humbling journey of my life!  Thank you for sharing!
