His experience on bold, new-age campaigns is why he is perfectly suited for an idea-first agency like VMLY&R, which leads with digital thinking while doing integrated work for brands. Also, the sheer energy and learning he brings to the game every day is inspiring. Making him a perfect mentor for our young talent looking to learn the business.”

With solid tech and innovation capabilities and great ambition, I hope I can contribute to VMLY&R India joining the A-list soon.”
