BEHIND THE SPOTLIGHT
“Labels” can be limiting. Simply put – I love to act, dance & write. Spotlight is a wonderful mix of everything that makes me excited. It is an extension of my passion for films, fashion and entertainment amongst the various other interests I harbor. So yes here I am – a blogger from Singapore, currently doing my post-graduation in communications at the University of Mumbai.
After being a dancer for several years and freelance actor (something I started doing in high school), I honestly had no idea what to do next after my graduation. The field of communications always excited me. Armed with a B.Sc (hons) in Business from the University of London, I started my career in public relations and marketing with one of the biggest media companies in Singapore. On a random visit to Mumbai in 2011, I decided to join Actor Prepares where I picked up many nuances of production, scripting, acting and anchoring. That friendly visit turned into a year full of opportunities and auditions where I began to work on a television show on NDTV Imagine. I acted in documentaries for the National Geographic Channel, History Channel and went onto present a travel show, entitled “From the Hotel Window” for NTV Japan, pilot episodes for Discovery Travel & Living, “The Great India Quiz Show” for Timesnow and entertainment news for B4U (Music). I have anchored over 80 live shows across India & Singapore and appeared for advertisement campaigns for Sony Entertainment, Britannia, Reliance, Gillette, Castrol and Coca-cola. Recently, I also completed a stint as a radio jockey for Live 101 FM.
Initially, this blog started as a hesitant attempt to fuse my passion for words, films, beauty and fashion in one place but today Spotlight has become an integral part of who I am. It has made me eager to document everything I possibly can. And never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that I would be offered to write for publications like The World Spa Magazine, Epoch Times and be the entertainment editor for YouthTimes.com.
I hope you enjoy reading the scoops and stories. Feel free to click around, leave a comment or send me an email. I promise to do my best to respond as soon as I can.
