I am the founder of and game designer at Hashstash, one of India’s premier game development studios that helps Brands, Non-Profits and Educational Institutions effectively communicate and achieve their business objectives using games as the primary medium. Over the years, Hashstash has helped clients (such as Byju’s, WWF India, Glance, Vodafone Foundation, Microsoft, Octro, and Hike Messenger) build competitive edge using games and gamification.
I am, also, a founding member of a new and exciting media-tech company – MyyTake and I lead all technology initiatives there. Formed by a stellar team with over 20 years of media experience, together we are building the next-gen platforms for the digitally young. We recently announced a unique partnership with KPMG in India to jointly collaborate and develop service for clients on Sustainability Communication Strategy.
Over the last 10 years, I have actively worked towards shaping India’s gaming industry by organising Asia’s oldest game jam – BYOG, curating the India Game Developers Awards and the India Game Developer Conference. I help organise and run, India’s oldest game developer community – GameDev.in. I was recently inducted in the GI100 Global Game Changer’s 2020 list by the GamesIndustry.biz magazine.
