I am a skilled entertainment and media professional with a background of working in the global matrix organizations delivering media consulting, online media techniques & creative solutions, closely working with senior entertainment professional and business leaders, with high-end experience in digital marketing and film marketing. Also, a contributing columnist, cricket analyst& singer along with pursuing my masters in the entertainment business at full sail university. I am a management graduate (General Management) from NITIE (National Institute of Industrial Engineering), Mumbai and undergraduate in technology (Electrical & electronics) from NIT (National Institute of Technology), Calicut. A-year experience with a fortune-100 telecommunication company, where I handled sales and marketing responsibilities, put me into the limelight with my creative campaigning and online media marketing techniques. I held a position of the apprentice with various global companies: Sony Entertainment television, Wills lifestyle, Airtel, JWT and Ford motors.

Dale Carnegie training institute (Mumbai) played a enormous responsibility to empower my presentation skills. During my role as a journalist, I came across various forms of print media and authored various national projects (Fashion/Film/Cricket), whilst project MIHAN got national acclaim.
