Interests

An irrevocable bibliophile, tenacious epicure, tyro globetrotter and die-hard OTT fan;  my life has always been defined by a deep affinity for pop-culture wherein I have relished as well as been inspired by it. This inevitably has reflected in my predeliction towards vocations that stood symbolic for harnessing creativity, stellar storytelling and out-of-the-box expression. 

Thank you for your time!
