I am an independent journalist, writer, and editor based in Goa. Over the past eight years, I have written features and articles on music, culture, gender rights, and wellness, which have been published in various digital and print publications.
I advise publications, agencies and
non-profit organisations in stories that most represent them
I have completed projects for a wide variety of publications, both large and small, on timelines ranging anywhere from three days to three months. While I am happy to take up commissions for any kind of wordcraft required, I thrive in discovery and exploration. I love to deeply understand the needs of my client-collaborators and recommend narrative possibilities that best suit their needs.
Through working independently, I have been able to indulge my varied interests, and enjoyed the freedom to write about a wide range of things, from gender and mental health to wellness to electronic music — all in the same month. That being said, I am constantly questioning the impact of my work as a writer. I want to understand the myriad roadblocks that stop people from living with freedom and dignity, and participate in creating and documenting solutions at a systemic level that inform discourse, behaviour and policy change.
