I am an Indian journalist currently working as a reporter for Haymarket Media in Hong Kong covering corporate treasury and transaction banking. I am a creative and empathetic individual who loves cross-cultural settings. I have a diverse set of skills and I have worked in fintechs, nonprofits, media (newspapers and online media) and film production.
Some of my bylines
You can find my current work on Corporate Treasurer. Previously, I wrote for Quartz, Hong Kong Free Press and Fox Sports Asia. Aside from being a sports journalist, I also set up the corporate communications department at an Indian nonprofit, produced independent short films in Singapore and managed various communities. But it’s the stories that I wrote at J-school that I am most proud about – I wrote about the life of a Chinese imam in Hong Kong, penned a critical business review of a wellness gym (it was basically a gym operating a MLM outfit), interviewed long-term backpackers who don’t seem to want to stop travelling and I looked into why elderly Chinese migrate like snowbirds during the winter among many other projects at one of Asia’s top journalism schools.
More about me
I am also a story teller and I perform spoken word stories with the local group Hong Kong Stories. Since I left India in 2000, I believe I have a global perspective yet I am anchored by strong Asian values.
