When I started my career in 2004 at Timesjobs, people said digital is the next thing. More than 10 years later, that’s what I still hear. But I have finally made up my mind on this issue. I disagree. It is not a trend or a platform that competes with other media vehicles, but integrates with each one of them including digital TV, ‘Alive’ for Print, Shazam for radio, or digital outdoors. So digital is everywhere and not a thing.

And having started my career in digital, did stints outside it and then coming back again, I have seen each and every facet of it evolve, and luckily, I have had the opportunity to work on each of these. So I have created and optimized SEM campaigns for Microsoft, closely monitored SEO for MagicBricks.com, planned and bought media for Reckitt Benckiser, managed social media campaigns for UNICEF, led digital onground activations for Hyundai and worked on digital strategy for Coca-Cola. Each of these have been enriching and along the way I have won a few awards.

What I bring to the table is an indepth understanding of brands and their communication, ability to interpret it for digital, experience and knowledge to execute the same innovatively and finally be able to measure the performance against KPIs like ROI, brand love, etc. And with the advent of technology, I'm working closely on AI & Analytics. There is never a dull moment here.
