SKILLS + TOOLS
+ CREATIVE CONTENT SPECIALIST
Hi, I’m Ambika, and I specialize in digital communications and creative content production. I have a passion for written and visual communications and 7 years of work experience in social media, public relations, and digital marketing.
While I have worked with a range of B2C and B2B clients, including fashion, lifestyle, entertainment and energy, much of my work has been in the food and beverage industry. Currently, I am working in-house for Sysco as part of the company’s corporate communications team, developing a global social media strategy for the leading player in the foodservice industry.
From a young age, I was drawn to books and often wondered about who was creating the beautiful layouts in the magazines I’d spend my weekends flipping through. With my imagination, a Windows 95 Dell desktop computer, and CD-ROM software for Microsoft Kids Creative Writer, I was armed with the tools to tell any stories there were to be told; I was quick to create a homemade newsletter for my elementary school classmates that I handed out in the hallways. Fast forward to my formative years at Baylor University, I joined the school newspaper as a photojournalist, where I was capturing stories every day and diligently learned how to use the manual function of a DSLR camera. After graduating from Baylor with a bachelor’s degree in journalism at a time when journalism was being turned on its head, I continued my education through various PR internships, agency work and graduate studies in the business of design at Parsons The New School of Design.
Moving often, traveling when I can, and being naturally curious about my family's culture and others' has given me a unique perspective. Combining this global lense with the pursuit of my interests in words, design, and photography has provided me with a creative toolkit that helps me to listen closely and better communicate my messages in various forms. I hope to help you do the same. How can we work together?
