I have worked as an engineer, journalist, and marketing leader (India Today, Infosys BPO, see resume) and am expert at researching, writing, and communicating a story to widely different audiences.
I am interested in the journalism-meets-marketing kind of writing projects that can make a brand come alive through its engagement with people, processes, markets, and communities. The end result could be anything from a corporate history or coffee table book to media articles or website and social media content.
I have created a wide variety of company communication ranging from product literature and CEO speeches to white papers and customer stories. I have written for Ramco Systems, SSI, Polaris Software, Infosys BPO, QuEST, Aequs, Netmagic, and others in India, and for IBM and its solution partners (Intel, Microsoft, Accelrys, VMware, etc.) in the US on subcontract.
