Words, words, words.
I started work at a boutique publishing house in Sydney, Australia 15 years ago. Since then, I have set up my own academic editing business, and today I work under the mehta-text brand.
My area of specialisation has been business academia (mainly in marketing, management, finance, economics, strategy, human resources), but I have also worked with clients in the humanities.
In tandem, I have worked in film and TV as a writer and editor on various projects. The projects allowed me to build on my storytelling abilities, and with mehta-text, I have found the happy marriage between my excitement for storytelling and my passion for language.
a Masters in English Literature from University of Bombay, India;
a Post-Graduate Diploma in Editing and Publishing from Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia;
and a Certificate in Film Editing from AFTRS in Sydney, Australia.
I am also an adjunct lecturer at Essec Business School in Singapore, where I teach undergraduate business students "Storytelling for Business" and "Business Writing".
I speak 5 languages (English, French, Hindi, Marathi and Gujarati), have lived on 4 continents and take my words with me, wherever I go.
I am particularly interested in language, film, culture, cognition, and pedagogy.
