From age 11, I was possessed with the idea of starting my own country. Twenty years on, I realized this dream. In the summer of 2007, I set up Creativeland Asia, the land for people in the business of creativity.
Today from Advertising & Brand Management, Creativeland Asia has already made foray into Design, Film Production, Motion Picture, Brand Incubation & Licensing, Music and Digital Media. Creativeland Asia today is easily one of the fastest growing Creative houses this side of the globe.
I started dabbling with work from the age of 13. A newspaper boy in my summer holidays, an animal caretaker, a spoken English tutor, a pizza maker, a sales guy, a stage actor, a masseur and a bartender. Finally, after completing my Honours Degree in Mathematical Economics and happily dropping out of Business School, I settled for advertising.
I have worked in six countries in Asia and Europe. At Mudra(DDB), Leo Burnett, Orchard, Lowe and Grey. Have worked on some top multinational clients including Toyota, Top Ramen, McDonalds, Coca-Cola, LG, Diageo, Deutsche Bank, P&G Pantene and AXA.
Cliche though, winning is a passion. So far have about 280 awards including the Asia Pacific Adfest, Cannes, Abby, Goafest, Creativity Annual, London International Awards and New York Festival among others.
In my free time I love interacting with students and learning from them. I have been invited to motivate and speak at many institutions, companies and colleges. Including, Hocshule Fur Kuntz in Bremen- Germany when I was barely 21 years.
