About me

Tara considers herself somewhat of a lucky girl. Having fallen into the ad industry by mere chance, she’s enjoyed some great career opportunities, served on a few juries and won numerous awards while working on most of Sri Lanka's top brands. She's even dominated young creative competitions, and represented the country at Young Lions - Cannes Lions, Young Lotus - ADFEST, Young Spikes - Spikes Asia and Dentsu Tokyo's YIW 2018.

The only possible explanation she has for all this good fortune is that she’s been pooped on by crows on twelve separate occasions.

When not ideating, writing copy or getting victimized by her feathery friends, she, rather dubiously, studies the law. And practices illeism.
