I am Sandhya Ramachandran, a multimedia storyteller who helps brands across the globe express themselves through engaging narratives. A passionate advocate of location independence, I believe in changing the way the world works, one story at a time. I hold a Post Graduate diploma in Film and Video Communication from the National Institute of Design and a Bachelors degree in Architecture. Based out of Mumbai (Bombay), India, I have been working remotely for the past 3.5 years.
