About Me

Thank you for visiting my website!

Look’s like you’d like to know more about me.

Well, named after the Rubik’s cube, my story has a colourful twist or two. Some of them you’re going to find out if we speak in person 😉 But safe to say, all things digital have always held a sway over me ever since I learnt to use computers (and take them apart). I’ve been building digital experiences since the days’ of Yahoo Geocities. Yet this continues to thrill me till date.

However, this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to my interests and talents.

My career has seen several twists in the tale. With an education in advertising and marketing I found my footing in advertising as a copywriter and grew to be a Creative Director. To go beyond my creative prowess and understand the rest of Ad Land, I delved into Account Management and finally Strategy, completing a wide spectrum of advertising functions. Yet I always have been and will be a digital creative at heart.  

Skilled with a twist

My career has been forged in one of the largest communication networks in India and the most awarded agency in APAC / Singapore – Proximity BBDO. I have honed the following skills  on leading brands like P&G, Mercedes-Benz and Pedigree while constantly looking to chase new ones. I have also had the privilege of working with Dentsu Singapore and collaborating with The Boston Consulting Group and PR company Idea Communications.
