Tanvi started work at a boutique publishing house in Sydney, Australia 15 years ago. Since then, she has set up her own academic editing business, and today works under the mehta-text brand.

Tanvi’s area of specialisation has been business academia (mainly in marketing, management, finance, economics, strategy, human resources), but she has also worked with clients in the humanities.

In tandem, Tanvi worked in film and TV as a writer and editor on various projects. The projects allowed her to build on her storytelling abilities, and with mehta-text, she has found the happy marriage between her excitement for storytelling and her passion for language.

Tanvi has:

  • 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.

Tanvi is also an adjunct lecturer at Essec Business School in Singapore, where she teaches undergraduate business students "Storytelling for Business" and "Business Writing".

She speaks 5 languages (English, French, Hindi, Marathi and Gujarati), has lived on 4 continents and takes her words with her, wherever she goes.

She is particularly interested in language, film, culture, cognition, and pedagogy.
