A cartoonist, comic creator, and writer — Deepak Gopalakrishnan is someone you can have an immersive conversation with over coffee or beer. He's a freelance content and marketing professional with bylines in prominent publications such as Arre, The Hard Copy, etc. He also runs an agency, Rough Paper Creative, with his wife, and they have a combined experience of over 20 years in advertising and events. While he thinks his friends introduce him as the guy who squandered a promising chemical engineering career to do something on the internet, his friends actually introduce him as a freelancer and writer in the digital marketing space.
Deepak hosts three podcasts: Simblified, Getting Meta, and The Origin of Things. With an established course on digital marketing, he has taught over 300 students; a conversation with him illustrates he isn't keen on being only a creator — he also wants to enjoy his creations, make them meaningful and lead a life he intends to. And oh, did we mention? He enjoys rock and metal music and loves PG Wodehouse.
