Short Biography

I have an overall experience of over 9 years in technology firms spanning across various roles viz. Product development, Business Development, Marketing and Product Management. I am currently working with Bookmyshow as DGM Product. At Bookmyshow, i am looking at new innovations to increase adoption and retention for the movie bookings business. I have successfully rolled out a few key products - Reserve a seat and hyper-local coupons towards achieving these goals. I am a startup enthusiast and have tried out (read burnt) my hands a couple of times. But i am very happy about the things i have learned in the process and i am very proud of one product in particular called "Offscreen" - An audio app which gives you the latest in-depth news and offbeat stories during moments when you cant access your mobile screen. It is on the Android Play Store. I can help young startups with product thinking, figuring out the right GTM and achieving scale.
