I am a critical writer, visual designer, content strategist and a compulsive story-teller deeply steeped in spicy potatoes x asafoetida, two things so beautifully Desi, I (almost) forget to sporadically rant about all things third-culture. I am interested in anti-colonistic cultural expositions within content creation, the notion of redefining Art Therapy in the 21st century, framing and reframing theatrical/ comedic narratives and typographically inclined publishing practices. My writing and editorial skills have (hopefully) been read in Vice Digital, TimeOut, Lonely Planet, Curiosity Magazine, AATA film media Group. In addition, I have been opportune in working as an Editor for ARC, RCA’s student magazine under the able leadership of Emily LaBarge, with my awe-inspiring cohort.
Before undertaking the MA writing course in my room; on my catastrophically misplaced desk, I graduated from Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology, with a degree in Design for Visual Communication and Strategic Branding, alongside Film. This school provided me with a platform to engage in process documentation, design thinking and most importantly– morphing eclectic sensory associations into perceptive visual conversations. I have since worked in advertising agencies such as JWT and Jenny Craig in Southern California, McCann Worldgroup in Mumbai, and most joyously– an art facilitator for specially-abled children.
I am currently freelancing– playing the role of an exhibition & travel writer, and when given the chance, I attempt at writing scripts for ill-fated comedians; occasionally taking the stage in hopes that tomatoes are banned from the venue. I am also workshopping my way through my love/hate relationship with iridescent eroticas, the world of hang-slang, and what my favourite reality stars are upto. I (semi) firmly believe that my cautious rambling is a consequence, reflection and battlefield of my internal diarrhetic monologue.
