About our Editor-in-Chief

A Pulitzer Prize. Graduating Harvard magna cum laude. Being a TedX speaker at the tender age of 18. I have achieved none of these things.

I believe I had my textual awakening at an impressionable age when I chanced upon Haddaway’s smash hit, “What is Love?”, playing on the radio. The depth of its poetic philosophy moved my soul and stirred something deep within. Nonetheless, such feelings remained dormant until much later in life, when I promptly discarded my then freshly-printed MBA degree to become a full-time journalist straight out of grad school. Consultants and management firms everywhere are said to have celebrated this move with great glee.

In the ensuing years, I have dabbled in writing in all its shapes and forms (yes, even SEO writing, unfortunately), with my career having seen me work in such diverse sectors as media and entertainment, advertising, academia, edtech, fashion, and much more that I have almost certainly forgotten about.

These formative experiences, including my lengthy stint (by my standards) at Times Group, have shaped my mind into something of a kaleidoscope, capable of interpreting many patterns and hues and seeing beauty in organised chaos. I’d like to believe I have marched firmly to the beat of my own drum, and as Editor-in-Chief of Team Marksmen Network, I aim to deliver insightful and engaging content that titillates and delights in equal measure.

Because, to quote the poet-philosopher Haddaway, this is our life, our time. Join us on this rollercoaster journey as we seek to make the most of it. I hope to capture your imagination as we seek to make sense of the next big story and chase the creative thrill of presenting it to you in a way you haven’t seen before.
