Greetings. I am a British-Indian writer, editor and translator based in Kyoto, Japan. I specialise in stories and features centred around culture, Japan, travel, technology and marketing.
Publications I have written for include South China Morning Post, Kyoto Journal, and Tsunagu Japan. Some samples of my published work can be found here: Japanese culture, Travel, Japanese food, Japanese music.
Previously, I worked in global marketing agencies in London. I helped international brands tailor their communications so they would be relevant for people. I spoke at international events about marketing and technology. A sample of my interviews can be found here.
I am a graduate of the Masters in Creative Writing from the University of Warwick in the U.K.
In my personal essays – some of which can be found on this site – I explore slow contemplative travel, traditional and contemporary subculture in Japan, the merge of technology with our modern lives and the importance of having green spaces integrated into urban areas.
I share my favourite hidden places in Kyoto on Instagram with snippets of local history.
I co-host a podcast called Paper Pilgrims about world literature.
I am a long-time learner of the Japanese language.
I’m always up for hearing about potential opportunities and collaborations so please contact me whenever you like!
