Sreeju Sudhakaran is a hotel management graduate, who never managed to show any affinity to the concept of hospitality for money. Career-wise, he has been a proverbial jack of all trades – right from working in a fast food chain, teaching, writing soothing emails to disgruntled British Airways passengers, appeasing hard-hearted insurance clients, dabbling in short filmmaking to finally attaining Nirvana in the blogosphere. Currently, he has set up a small production company with the help of similarly cuckolded friends, where they are working on a TV series for a renowned Malayalam channel. He is also a huge movie and book aficionado and has a site dedicated to his love for movies (http://theunseenticketpayer.com).
In between all this, the little time that he has is spent on his first passion - writing. His first book ‘Love and That Bitch Called Life…’, an unconventional romantic drama, hit the stands in 2012. Presently, he stays in Dombivli with his family. For any praises or abuses with regards his work and otherwise, you can connect with him via his personal blog - https://theconstantblabberer.wordpress.com,
