Greetings! I am a British-Indian writer and editor based in Kyoto, Japan. I specialise in stories and features centred around travel, Japan, technology and marketing.
I am a graduate of the Masters in Creative Writing from the University of Warwick in the U.K. Some samples of my published work can be found here: Travel, Japanese food, Japanese music. Publications I have written for include Tsunagu Japan, Livemint, and Indian Express.
Previously, I worked in advertising and marketing agencies in London. I helped international brands reach people across the globe by helping them create communication strategies using media tactics (SEM, SEO, digital media, TV, press, OOH). I routinely spoke at international events about marketing and technology. A sample of my interviews can be found here.
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.
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!
