Professional Summary

Just out of college and straight into a 20 year old Advertising Agency named The Art Department, I embarked on my marketing yatra when billboards and TVCs were preferred over digital. I helped big brands transition to digital and visualized how the future was digital. If big brands with budgets so huge are shifting to digital, why shouldn't the small ones directly jump in and leverage the low cost opportunity?

 

This enlightenment led to my inner entrepreneur setting up Social Soda, an agency focused in Digital Marketing which later became Start Advertising in collaboration with a handful of artists.

 

Today, I am a One Man Rock Band and I owe this to Start Ad, for it was there that I dabbled in everything marketing - from strategy to copy to design to performance marketing. Over the years, I've perfected the art.
