I'm a radio, web, and print journalist by training, and a podcaster and independent radio producer, podcasting consultant, trainer, and coach.

Under the banner of Sonologue, my audio production house, I not only do production and podcast consulting, I also undertake workshops on podcasting, audio storytelling and content creation. Podcasting workshops are tailored for news/media organizations, colleges, non profits and corporations. I frequently do primers for DIY Podcasting across India.

When I'm not traveling (just point me in any direction), I'm listening out for #solutions stories that reveal the quirks of the human condition as well as show the good that exists in the world with a focus on science, social enterprise and the environment. My radio work has been broadcast on PRI, DW, NPR, and the BBC World Service. I also used to be the South Asia correspondent for Radio Netherlands. Clips are online here.

I produce two of my own podcasts and consult with organizations and individuals who need advice or direction to launch a podcast, or give their own audio content a facelift. Clients include The Consulate General of Canada, Goethe Zentrum, Deloitte and others.

Previously, I headed content for AudioCompass - taking heritage sites from inception and routing to lushly produced self-guided audio tours. These have included historical narratives presenting facts through fictionalized narrators, first person travelogues, as well as more standardised third-person tours. To produce these international-quality long-form tours, I vetted and worked with a team of script writers, travellers, experienced voice artists & actors, studios, sound engineers, sound designers, and producers.
