You can be a freelancer, agency, and a client on Upwork. You will use the same account to log in to Upwork but will have separate user profiles. You will be able to easily switch between them as needed.

Note: You can't have two separate freelancer accounts. But you can create specialized profiles to  highlight your different talents.
