I am an Indian communications professional currently working as an in-house copywriter/editor/media liaison resource at a public relations agency in Hong Kong (find me on LinkedIn here). I am also a storyteller in Hong Kong and I have been a screenwriter and executive producer at an independent production house in Singapore. Over the past decade, I have worked as a journalist covering private equity and venture capital activity in India and Southeast Asia, corporate finance dealing with CFOs in Singapore and Hong Kong and written about sports across Southeast Asia.
Since I left India in 2000 (I have lived in Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia and Hong Kong), I have developed a global perspective yet I am anchored by strong Asian values.
Some of my past work
- At Asian Venture Capital Journal, I wrote 300 articles in just over 150 days interviewing more than 140 people in nearly eight months
- I have looked into why elderly Chinese from the Northeast migrate like snowbirds during the winter and written about the life of a Chinese imam in Hong Kong
I have written for the likes of Corporate Treasurer, Quartz, Hong Kong Free Press and Fox Sports Asia. In 2015, I went back home, backpacked for nearly a year and then set up the corporate communications department at an Indian nonprofit managing a team of seven individuals. Notably, my department was the only one that had stability over two years in a start-up-like environment. I believe I am a kind, helpful and hardworking individuals who elevates teams.
I studied economics at the National University of Singapore and I completed a master’s programme in journalism at the University of Hong Kong.
I am also a storyteller and I perform spoken word stories with the Hong Kong-based storytelling group Hong Kong Stories
I speak English, Hindi, Tulu, Kannada and a smattering of Chinese and Indonesian.
