Introduction

I'm a flag-bearer in digital media, social interactive content development, advertising, marketing communications and technology with over eight years experience.

I have a proven background in establishing and leading brands online to create new innovative consumer digital media services, applications, programs and platforms that find audience, build engagement and deliver market share.

I have lived and worked in India, Thailand and Australia. Even though I’m not on Mark Zuckerberg’s Christmas card list, I breathe, eat and live the word of Social & Digital.

My professional goal is to be always looking to break new ground and develop brilliant interactive connected experience programs that delight customers. I have a solid understanding of the Australian digital and social media landscape. Working with a variety of projects and team has enabled me to be extremely team focussed ensuring consistency in strategies across the board.

Digital technologies are having a pervasive influence on business, transforming the customer experience, enhancing productivity in operations and improving the way employees collaborate. Capturing the potential of this influence is my transformative vision for digital intelligence in the future.

    • Muscle TV On Demand - With consumers abandoning the traditional rigid format like TV to access entertainment and news for more flexible newer options. The idea was to build brand awareness and visibility. We moved from an overt branding approach and archaic 'Danoz Direct' model to a Wayne's World feel. We know it's an ad, the audience knows it's an ad, so let's make a joke about it.
