Professional Profile

Hailing from Mumbai, Aditya is a townie - born and bred. After reading through countless physics journals and memorising formulas for three years in college, he set out to be a Bachelor Of Science in Physics, but was won over by the idea of the free product samples offered in the ad world. Physics out, advertising in.

He began his career at Contract in 2012. Here he was a part of the Ashok Leyland and Godrej Locks businesses. Somewhere in between he also helped the agency chalk up a new business win. (Quite a fancy start, eh?) Next he made the jump to Ogilvy in 2016. A year on, countless artworks and one successful car launch later, What's Your Problem, came knocking. (Yes, that's the name of an agency.) Anyway, Aditya answered the calling of a digital agency and is now asking the same question to his clients and passionately helping build brands. As cliched as it may sound, he's analog at heart with a digital soul.


When he's not working, you could perhaps find him with his buds at the neighbourhood watering hole or catching up on his sleep. Also, if it isn't too obvious, this Go-To Guy also likes writing in third person.
