Shiva Sharma Akalwadi

Communications Specialist

I worked with Greenpeace, Dream A Dream, Thrillophilia, Practo and a startup before I joined ThoughtWorks. Working with both development & corporate sector, have translated to become a very enriching experience - being with a diverse group of people, dealing with a very eclectic bunch of challenges. 

In my usual look out for greener pastures when travelling, I came to the city of gardens. A poet by default and a nerd by choice I believe in the power of storytelling. In my free time, I like to explore and study the way the human race has evolved in the context of culture, traditions, and practices. Off late, I have taken my hobbies seriously, which other than work keeps me busy and distracted from Bangalore traffic.
