My first-ever career aspiration involved a friendly Tyrannosaurus Rex with an equestrian saddle and townspeople in need of a masked hero. Two decades ago, I gave up on it and decided to do something less dramatic instead.
I am a writer. I have been working as one – in some capacity or the other – for over 12 years. I have gone by many names. Copy editor, newspaper columnist, daily blogger, content head and creative consultant – to name a few.
I took a year off from corporate employment in 2013 to work on two documentaries – White Van Stories and That Fired Soul – as a scriptwriter / voice recording artist / digital marketer. They were showcased across Channel 4, BBC and CNN. They won multiple awards at global and national film festivals. That year, a poem of mine was also put to print by independent publishers as part of the Modern and Contemporary Poetry collection.
Simply put, I am a communication ninja. I advise brands how to better communicate with audiences – employees, clients, stakeholders and anyone else listening in. I use the art of storytelling to bridge gaps, create synergy and help companies stop using words like “synergy”. My areas of expertise include Corporate Communication, Public Relations, Corporate Social Responsibility, Product Marketing, Social Media Positioning and Sales Support.
More importantly, I am an amateur birder and awkward dog kisser – in pursuit of a life in the hills, travelling, tasting wild fruits and photographing dreams.
