Issac John

Issac is a consumer marketing professional who turned to writing when a childhood dream tugged far too often and he landed in New York to study screenwriting. After returning from New York, Issac wore multiple hats of a columnist, teacher, Uber driver and consultant on the side while trying to hustle his way through a few manuscripts and screenplays. He counts Woody Allen, Jeffrey Archer, O'Henry, Herge, Rajat Kapoor, Sai Paranjpe, David Mamet and Aaron Sorkin among his primary influences.
Prior to pursuing writing, Issac led the marketing team at PUMA India for four years. It was a job he loved dearly and his experiences there include sharing cookies with Roy Hodgson in the Directors Box at The Emirates stadium-the home of Arsenal Football Club,catching a beer with Usain Bolt and discussing the Ashes with Sachin Tendulkar. Notwithstanding these distractions, in 2015, Pitch magazine nominated Issac as one of the Top 10 Young Marketers in India.
