How it all started

It all started on a hospital bed with a laptop and a dream.

In 2012, while in complete isolation and having a life-changing Bone Marrow Transplant with a 50/50 chance of survival, I decided to chase my dream and launch my first eCommerce store.

Fast forward to today, I am the Founder & CEO of a digital agency Raven & Macaw with a fast-growing team of 15 full-time employees. From Raven Optical Management Software (SaaS) to Digital Marketing & Web services, Raven & Macaw is a fully integrated digital solution exclusively for the Optical Industry.

Why so many things in my cup of tea? The beautifully short yet true answer to this is - YES. Every opportunity that came my way, I said YES without thinking twice and it has made all the difference in my life and took me to unimaginable places.
