I lead a double life. I'm as enthusiastic about music as I am about advertising. I write music (the guitar being my key instrument), copy, poetry, jingles and lyrics. I have a ravenous appetite for good food and awards. I go on long walks or cycle through the nooks and crannies of the city as well as the lesser trodden paths far away from the city, stopping occasionally to see places and new faces, clicking the animate and inanimate, and weaving stories around them.
