Words are cardinal to our process of meaning-making, and to interpreting our reality. Think about it—where your words end, is where your defined world ends. Now, think about what that means for your business.

I’m a writer and a storyteller. When you work with me, you access over a decade of experience in creating stories for brands, personalities, and governmental organisations, through books, films, digital platforms and national newspapers like The Sunday Times and The Daily FT.

Some of the businesses I’ve worked with include Sri Lanka Design Festival, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Sri Lanka, Four Seasons Resort Landaa Giraavaru, Colomboscope, Elpitiya Plantations, Rithihi and Brandix. Stories of personalities like Anoma Wijewardene, Dulith Herath and Linda Speldewinde have been crafted in my care. 

My work is better read than explained. Get in touch to request for specific works, or a random sampling from my portfolio.
