Welcome 👋

That's me rocking a ProductHunt Tee

I'm a 23-year-old marketer living in Bangalore, India.

I'm a problem solver and growth hacking is fit right into my mindset.

My approach towards building, growing and retaining a customer base does not depend on traditional marketing plans or a big ad spend, but rather on harnessing software development to build marketing into the product.

I like to collect and analyze vast amounts of user data to experiment with new features, messaging and branding or even test new marketing efforts at an increasingly lower cost, much higher speed and a great level of precision.

I like to drive success by bringing methodical, generating and testing new ideas for marketing, and using user behavioral data to find the winning ideas that drive growth.

I love to run experiments, get data, learn and run more. I'm ready to bring in a lot of ideas to the table and implement them.

I also love to tap into data, and use it to extract specific, relevant, real-time insights into user behavior that can be used for strategizing and crafting more effective targeted growth initiatives.
