Digital strategy

Content creator

Creative storyteller

Write time at the write place!

My rollercoaster career ride began in Bombay, India. The first part of the ride took me through the world of journalism and publishing instilling in me the finer aspects of writing, editing, proofing, production, and conducting interviews. A few years later, I embarked on the second leg of my career into advertising. Besides enjoying the duties of a copywriter and creative lead, I taught myself graphic design. 

Driving digital transformation

Two decades ago, I moved to Toronto which coincided with the third and most exciting part of my career. The learning bug made my mind its permanent home. I tackled the internet teaching myself web design and development keeping in mind the constantly changing digital trends and raising my standards intuitively. I am well versed in the latest web, interactive, marketing, and digital technologies. In my latest position at a financial company I successfully tackled the challenge of converting corporate publications to an interactive digital format saving tens of thousands of dollars and shortening project timelines to 1/10th the timeframe leveraging existing work flows, skills, and software.
