Aditi Singh

Travel And Food Curator

Content is the reason search began in the first place”. Aditi’s search began as a television presenter, strutting on heels, on hockey and kabaddi fields, keenly observing the match and jotting down points for a live presentation on Star Sports! The thrill of getting it right on live television was what drove her to explore more. Then she switched to travel and design discovering stories and experiences at Times Network. Presently, the digital world caught her fancy where she follows her true passion – travel and food.
Motto: Search. Capture. Share. Repeat.

Neelam Jain

Brand Collaborator

Elbows in her salsa sauce, and the definition of a true foodie. Neelam Jain loves trying out all cuisines at every restaurant that’s brought to her notice everyday. Schezwan pasta, enchiladas at an Udipi restaurant, truly experimental yet completely satiated with her choices as she knows exactly how to pair up different items. Did we also mention that she handles branded content business at Curly Tales? Hard to keep track when we see Neelam eat all the food
