About

Hola! This is Manik here. I love creating new things with awesome people. Here are some of the projects that I’m involved in…


Wordsmith on Tumblr

Writing is what defines me best, and it’s what I’d do all day if given the choice.

Usually, I stick to short pieces that you can read on your train ride back home. Check them out on Tumblr.

They all follow the theme of “experiencing new emotions as you grow into an adult in a chaotic world.” In other words, they’re reflections on the complications and realisations that only come as we age.

If you’re in your 20s, you may find some comfort in my pieces. Let me know what you think of them!


Reeler on Instagram

When I need a break from writing, I switch to creating carousels & video content on Instagram. On this platform, I focus on more non-fiction practical stuff.

You’ll find ample life hacks & tech tools suggestions to increase your productivity, brand yourself better at work, or save time, effort, and money.

Strategist for Brands

To put food on the table, I work as a digital marketing consultant.

I specialize as a marketing project management leader, which means I lead young marketing teams & oversee all the vital functions: social media strategy, email newsletters, customer relationships, editorial content, product description, UI/UX, sales funnels, performance paid ad campaigns, design identity, PR, ORM (online reputation management), etc.

I’ve handled brands across various industries such as F&B, FMCG, BFSI, fashion, sports & fitness, and technology as part of corporate, agency, and freelance arrangements. I believe this versatile track record has made me an agile leader who can easily adapt to any setting & challenge.

Without going any further, I’ll let my Portfolio do all the talking. Check it out on my Behance. You can also read my marketing insights on this website itself.

Coming to my credentials, I did my Bachelor’s Degree in Mass Media & Communications with Monash University (Malaysia campus) in 2019 and secured the “Best Graduate Award” for my batch. I have online certifications in Facebook Advertising, Google Advertising, social media, and sales.

I’m always open for part-time freelance projects, so hit me up to discuss more.
