Initially starting off her career in journalism taking on freelance work that covered business, technology and the media industries, she also had the opportunity to write articles about visual art and culture. During her time as a freelance journalist, Ingrid had the opportunity to work with world-leading companies, such as the Finacial Times and The Times (London). This time period established her specialism in technology, and thus propelled her name onto a global stage.

It was in November of 2010 that Ingrid started working as a reporter for paidContent.org and mocoNews.net. As these companies are business news-led websites, Ingrid gained experience in news analysis.
