Summary

After more than a decade in the online media industry, I am still fascinated with it. I got into it just before the dotcom boom of early 2000's, writing content for a city portal, ChennaiOnline.com. For over two years, I wrote on a variety of topics, interviewed scores of personalities and on two memorable occasions, got official press pass to cover the local ATP tour event.

A brief hiatus later, I started blogging and writing for a popular South Asian online magazine, Desicritics.org. Then came a year at university, getting a Masters degree in Electronic Publishing, to update my skills.

Now I am raring to go, looking for the perfect opportunity to get stuck into.
