Editor in Chief/Director at DoubleDee Publications (Travel Talk Asia)
Having a strong desire to use my education in journalism and Marketing to contribute to the Tourism industry in Sri Lanka, I set out to launch Sri Lanka’s first ever Travel Trade monthly publication “Travel Talk” in 2003. Over the past 16 years the publication has grown to be one of the most sought after trade magazines securing international media partnerships and official media status at the world’s leading Travel Trade forums.
Being an entrepreneur in this ever evolving industry has given me the opportunity to diversify the publication and focus on specialized areas such as the Meetings and Events industry along with highlighting the myriad of products available to travelers. The publication has its presence in Asia, Europe, the Middle East and the UK.
Travel Talk remains the number 1 ranked trade publication in the country and a partner for industry events both locally and globally.
On a personal note, I was selected to attend the Global Entrepreneur Summit in Silicon Valley USA in 2016 and was part of the delegation representing Sri Lanka at the Commonwealth Business forum in 2018.
I also serve as the Vice President of SKAL International Colombo (The worlds largest travel organization), VP of the North American Women Association and member of the Womens Chamber of Industry and Commerce.
