I am marketer who use design to create great products, brands and experiences. I work at the intersection of Business, Marketing & Design.

What can I do for you?

I can help you understand your users and their expectations, design the product and experience accordingly, strategise its goals and roadmap, considering the business goals. Using design I can help with your marketing and sales.

How can I help your business?

The wide range of experience I have on various areas makes me valuable for your business.

Right now I am a jack of many trades, a master of none, but oftentimes better than a master of one. I truly believe that because I have dealt with and have seen the work of many self claimed masters.

In other words, a generalist rather than a specialist. I am aware about the generalist v/s specialist debate, but for now I intend to continue as a generalist. Also I do bring in specialists depending on the project requirements and budget. So I have got it all covered for you.

My Story

Oct 2017- Feb 2020

Product Design

Tried to figure out a career guidance service for teenagers. Interviewed around 130 professionals from various industries in 6 months. I failed to come up with a sustainable business model, so did not continue. May be one day I will and get back to it. You can check the website.

Market Researcher

I was part of the Market Research team for Kantar Operations under TNS Global in London. Traveled across the country interviewing 1000s of people and did many focus groups. The research was done across a wide range of sectors including consumer and FMCG, technology, financial and professional services, social research and public services, and travel and tourism. It is from here I picked up my user research skills. Learnt a lot about how unreliable such data can be if it is not done the right way.

2011 – 2012

Nightclub Photography + KFC

Started the Nightclub Photography as a fun thing to do during the weekends and became a serious business. It was more about sales than photography. The same goes with KFC. Understanding the customer’s need who is in front of you and helping them to make the right choices in that short period of time and selling them something is an art.

First Job

Waiter at one of the top Indian restaurants in the UK

Never thought finding a part time job in a restaurant will be this difficult. I had to make a CV and demonstrate how I will serve a customer. Even though the demonstration went terribly wrong I was picked to do the job. Learnt how to serve a customer, help them make choices, sell and bring in revenue.

MBA

Market Research & Operations

Deciding to do MBA in Cardiff University was one of the best decisions I made in life. This is where the butterfly effect happened. That one decision changed a lot of things. The exposure I got here was intense. It was not just the MBA program, everything around it also was equally important. Market Research was the favorite subject and I thank Dr. Kelly Page for it.

Mechanical Engineering

The idea was to become a Product Designer. I was always curious about how things work, so wanted to design things which works better. At that time Mechanical Engineering sounded like the path to become a Product Designer. However by 2nd year itself it was clear that I am not learning the things I want to learn. Dropping out wasn’t an option, so went ahead with it. Now that when I look back even though I did not learn much about the subjects itself, it definitely shaped the way I process things, in a good way ofcourse.

1988 – 2006

Early Days

Born in 1988, school days were alright. Not a studious student, but mostly managed to score well. Spent a lot of time helping dad at his electronics retail store. Met a hell lot of people, interacted with them, picked up the art of marketing and sales from there. It was technically my window to the world.
