#MeetHackPack: Nikhil Sivadas

We made good on our promise! One of us (cough cough Farah) wouldn’t leave us all alone until we made videos so you could see us in person. We hope you like getting to know us as much as we’ve liked getting to know you.

Nikhil is our volunteer Community Manager for Asia, and our pro broadcasting professional (anyone who watches the video will know that immediately). He is also secretly hilarious.


Hi, I’m Nikhil, I’m 31 and I’m from India. I’ve been a journalist for a little over 7 years, and I currently work as an assistant editor at NDTV, one of the largest media groups in the country.

In fact, most organizations usually straightjacket journalists into certain beats that they don’t really care about. Now HackPack is a great way for these journalists to come up with original content and pitch it to editors across the globe and get it published.

This is why I’m happy to volunteer with HackPack, as I help the Asian media community connect, collaborate and do the kind of journalism that they really love.
