Organized 17 trail running races and 14 mountain bike races. Initiated relief projects in earthquake-affected areas in central Nepal

Over the past years, I have been involved in several demanding events and development projects that have honed my organizational skills. I am able to combine skills in writing, programming, analytics, marketing, photography and branding, coupled with a dedicated team, to bring an idea to life. For each project, I conceptualize, plan and execute the ideas, and analyze the outcome to make restless progress. Here are three projects I have been extensively involved in:

KTM Series

Founding Director. This monthly trail running event in Kathmandu Valley took off on October 2018. It has steadily grown over time to receive over 350 participants in each edition; half the runners are expats and half locals. By actively maximizing efficiency and making improvements based on feedback from the participants, we have grown considerably since founding and regularly receive positive, encouraging reviews.

Apart from being a founding member, I handle event operations, admin, media, branding, IT, policy, marketing, logistics and overall strategy. More than 20 team members are mobilized for KTM Series, which has become a popular weekend out for friends and families to enjoy the nature.

Years active: 2018 to present

GRAND HIMALAYAN ENDURO (GHE)

Co-Founder / Media Director. GHE is a yearly mountain biking race in the eastern outskirts of Kathmandu. The event started in 2016, and in 2019 was selected as an Enduro World Series Qualifiers. The week-long event sees more than 100 international racers – from beginners to elite, including national champions of Belgium, Singapore and South Korea – compete for the coveted title.

As a co-founder of Gnarly, the company behind GHE, I headed the IT, branding, photography, content, online marketing and media relations. More than 75 team members are mobilized for the grueling event. It has become one of the most awaited mountain biking races in Nepal.

Years of my involvement: 2016 to 2019

EUTAI MALA NEPALI

Founding Director. Conceived in 2015 within days following the April 2015 earthquake that struck Nepal, Eutai Mala Nepali was a development initiative that collected and distributed relief materials worth USD 200,000, which included material goods like food, high grade tents, sanitation materials, CGI sheets and solar-powered lighting for several hundred rural households.

I devised relief and reconstruction strategy, raised funds, designed the website, wrote content and executed the plans, along with writing reports and documentation. As a small, dynamic team, we were swift in identifying needs, preparing proposals, raising funds, executing tasks and documenting the process in real-time.

Years active: 2015 to 2017
