I have been working in the event industry for over 8 years now. My primary focus is the catering aspect, having dealt with service and logistics on numerous occasions. I love the rush of being able to organize and execute a project from beginning to end. The attention to detail, traditions and festive culture of the South Asian community have always allowed me to tap into my creative energies.
