I come with over 17 years of work experience in television, film, events, indie music, food and beverage, and hospitality. With a degree in Public Relations and Corporate Communication, I started my professional career as a Corporate Communication Manager at Sony PIX and then joined Vinod Chopra Films as an Assistant Producer - working on films such as 3 Idiots and Ferrari Ki Sawaari. I went on to work with OML Entertainment where I managed artists like Ankur and The Ghalat Family, curated F&B at music festivals such as NH7 Weekender and toured with international artists like Norah Jones, Enrique Iglesias, Guns N Roses, Lady Gaga and more as their Hospitality Curator.
I set up India's first culinary curating company - Small Fry Co in 2013 where I curated and produced over 50 pop-up food festivals and dining experiences promoting the local and homegrown culinary scene in the country. I worked as a hospitality consultant and set up a boutique guest house called 28 Kothi, a quaint local, farm-fresh cafe called Cafe Kothi and The Johri, a luxury boutique hotel - all in Jaipur. I also set up Baro Masi, a rooftop bar at Hotel Udai Kothi, Udaipur. I currently consult for restaurants and run a members- only women entrepreneurs community in Goa called W.E.
I contribute to lifestyle magazines and websites such as Condé Nast Traveller India, Travel + Leisure, Homegrown.in and the annual Godrej F&B Trends Report. I am also a speaker at Ink Talks, WPP Stream and The Coalition.
I spent a large part of my childhood travelling all over India with my family and fell in love with the landscape. My journeys traverse through a history of unknown destinations, cultures, cuisines and stories of people who've not only opened their homes but also their hearts. These stories inspired me to launch India with Insia, a curated travel platform showcasing an all new India featuring unique destinations, boutique hotels and regional cuisine for the discerning millennial with a special focus on travel for women.
