TARAN CHADHA | Creative Director + Writer |

Most recently, I co-created two TV series, GM School which aired on the Turner Network, and Spark To Shelf on Essence, while bringing cinema back during the pandemic with the Walmart Drive In. Before that, I worked with Simon Fuller to film his latest pop group Now United in India. I partnered with First Book Canada to donate thousands of my kids book nationally, was featured on the SPACE channel for my work on several international comic books and worked on a few VR video games. I invented a device that changed blood donations (featured on Vice, Time etc), ran my own creative agency in Laguna Beach and created the first reality video game. Before that I made the viral online show Shoot The Banker (over a million hits in three weeks). Originally, I cut my chops at BBH and JWT in New York, then dabbled in graphic novels, pitched TV companies such as Disney and worked on several startups. But in the end, I love ideas. If you do too, let’s chat.

128ea2aJAN JAWORSKI | Creative Director at Facebook – “Taran Chadha is what happens when a Greek god is born in the form of an Indian man from western Canada. And by that I mean that he is by far one of my favorite people to work with, and an amazingly talented guy. He’s the type of creative person who, no matter what the problem is, you always know will solve it in an unexpected way. Whether it’s an integrated campaign, an interactive website with “live” robotics, a pilot for a TV show, a short film, a graphic novel, or a feature film script Taran has, literally, done it all. In addition to that, he’s one of the most collaborative, ego-less, fun and nicest people I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Oh, and he plays a mean tenor saxophone too. So if you’re in the mood for some sensual jazz, Taran’s your man.”



YUSONG ZHANG | ACD at Saatchi LA – “Taran is a very talented writer, and his talents extend way beyond the discipline of copywriting. He’s a well-rounded creative thinker and problem solver with a very unique vision. He attacks problems from every possible angle and finds the best solution. He’s also very kind and fun to work with. If you come across this guy, hire him!”
