About Vaibhav Sharma

Travel & tech journalist from New Delhi - Vaibhav Sharma

‘Allo there!

Thanks for moseying on over to my page. Some of you might already know me, while others amongst you probably haven’t (yet) had the chance to hear me argue about why power metal is the ultimate form of music (’80s rock is a close runner-up) and why espresso might very well be the elixir of life.

Who am I?

I’m a freelance writer and amateur photographer from New Delhi, India. Before striking out on my own, I spent three exciting years as Editor (Special Projects) at Stuff Magazine (India). My responsibilities at Stuff included features, product reviews, event coverage, and advertorials. I also contributed to the Stuff website (Stuff.tv/in) and our sister publication, What Hi-Fi (India). Apart from this, my articles and/or photos have appeared in other prestigious titles as well, including Outlook Traveller Getaways (where I worked as Associate Editor), Mint Lounge, Times of India Crest Edition, Sunday Guardian, India Deluxe Life, Zeitgeist Asia, Life Positive, and Management Compass. In the past, I’ve also worked on blogs, marketing copy, and guest articles for a few leading startups.

These days, I’m writing for some of India’s leading tech & lifestyle titles, including Maxim, Killer Features, and MensXP.

Stuff that I love

I’m the naturally curious sort, which is probably why I became a journalist. But while I love learning more about anything (and everything) under the sun, there’s a special place in my heart for some stuff – technology, travel, cars, pop culture, music and history. As for what I’m up to when not at work, I can usually be found seeking out the perfect espresso, listening to heavy metal, reading, watching reruns of ’80s movies and TV shows, and of course, dreaming about my next vacation (which cannot come soon enough).

Get in touch with me

Mail me or look out for me at the next tech / gadget launch event in Delhi – I’ll be the one chugging coffee like my life depends on it. You can also follow me on Twitter and Instagram or check out my travel & fine art photography galleries on 500px.
