Innovation is the key to the future. I have spent about 2 decades working with reputed international designer brands across the globe, helping many small businesses transform their products and brand to become multi-million dollar thriving businesses.
Every business has a unique DNA and having its own voice and expression is what sets it apart. I believe the most important factor for a business to catapult itself into thriving success is to be able to communicate their differentiating factors and an unwavering passion for quality products/services they offer to help others achieve their goals.
Photography, Art & Design have been an integral part of me all my life. My father was an exceptionally talented Artist & was awarded by the President for ‘Lifetime Achievement’ for his passion. He was also a renowned scientist by occupation during the day with many discoveries associated to his name. He was one of the rare few who could excel in creative as well as scientific thinking simultaneously. His mentoring taught me how to innovate, think creatively & see beyond the obvious.
Filmmaking and photography have been an incredibly satisfying medium of expression for me for the past 2 decades. I enjoyed having the opportunity of teaching the beautiful art of ‘Photography & Design’ at the university level for 5 years and was able to transfer the incredible lessons of creative thinking, technique, and technical fundamentals to hundreds of students.
Video is the most powerful medium of storytelling. I love creating Marketing videos that help you share your ‘Passion Story’ and lets your audience know why you are unique. Videos that help you build a personal connection with your audience, build brand awareness & drive engagement. By creating compelling videos that align with your brand’s goals & vision allows businesses to educate your customers, explain your products/services and inspire action from your audience.
I love working with people who are connected, passionate and live inspired. I meet & interact with many other passionate entrepreneurs & professionals every day in the community and feel blessed to have skills and an opportunity to transform their businesses from striving to thriving. My happiness comes from seeing our clients achieve their goals and make their dreams a reality.
