Winning painting competitions in schools sparked my initial interest in the visual arts and that led to a graduate degree in Graphic Design. But it wasn’t until my early-twenties, when I moved to Bangalore, that I began to pursue advertising.

I possess the ability to not only generate creative ideas but also to inspire and lead individuals to deliver their best performances. My expertise spans creative direction, quick and effective design execution, adept scriptwriting, and skilled art direction for photo/video shoots.

With a comprehensive 14-year career, I've spent 2 years as an in-house senior creative manager and 12 years in advertising, where I have consistently demonstrated leadership by successfully guiding teams comprising graphic designers, copywriters, UI/UX designers, and motion graphic designers. Under my strategic direction, these teams have not only clinched awards but have also secured numerous business pitches.
