I enjoy the 0-1, 1-10 journey and have setup processes from scratch. A true believer in leveraging multiple channels, from doing co-branded campaigns with the likes of Coca Cola, to creating a GTM strategy focused only on user experience for Paytm's loyalty program. From driving promoter led BTL campaigns in Rajasthan's by lanes to marketing and launching the Indian cricket team jersey twice.

About Me

Skilled in growth and GTM Strategy, Large scale campaigns, Partnerships, I possess proven leadership skills and a rich background in marketing. The proudest moment in my career was when a footage of the WC jersey launch’ 2022 which I had led was showcased in the middle of a live international match feed, for millions of fans worldwide.

With my experience building & scaling as Associate Director - Marketing at MPL, and at Paytm prior to that, and a proven history of creating innovative, award winning, multichannel media campaigns, growth strategies, including integrated marketing strategy for Paytm's loyalty program and Indian cricket team's jersey launch, I believe I have the expertise required to flourish in senior marketing roles at early to mid - stage startups.

Skilled in 0-1, I thrive while working with cross functional teams and external partners. I believe my biggest strength is always being ready to roll up my sleeves, treat every day as day 1 and my hunger to learn. I upskill myself every 2 years on a relevant skill that I believe will add to my progression.
