Vedant Naik has a way with words. Born and raised in Mumbai, he left India at the tender age of twelve, completing his education across Bangkok and the United States, before returning home at the ripe age of twenty-six. A graduate with a Bachelor’s in Communications, specifically Public Relations & Advertising from DePaul University in Chicago, Illinois, Vedant also worked for four years in an ad agency in the US. During his time as an Adman, he worked on multiple campaigns for a variety of clients. He was also part of the inaugural AAF (American Advertising Federation) delegation from his University which placed in the Top 20 out of over 200 colleges across the US. Since moving back, Vedant has delved into the podcast world, hosting two shows as part of the Manicpod Brand. The “Bad Movies Podcast” and “Decoding the Adman.” The former celebrating bad movies, and the latter an analysis of television advertising. His skills also include public speaking and filmmaking.
