A propos

I co-founded Fish Do It (Mumbai) and Some Early Birds (Malaysia). I currently work with brands and organisations to strategize, create, curate, design and produce content across formats - digital and print, experience and on-ground events, addressing marketing, visual and brand communications needs. I speak regularly at design events and conduct design related workshops addressing idea creation and project planning challenges.
