About Me

I'm currently a staff product manager at BuzzFeed focused on community and user generated content.

Previously, I co-founded Vyrtex, a media startup focused on connecting millennials with thought-provoking content. I designed and developed our web app from idea to beta launch and built a community of 100+ active content curators and 30,000+ monthly readers.

Before that, I studied business and computer science at UPenn/Wharton and led Penn Masala, a world-famous music group that released viral music videos and was featured in an award-winning Hollywood movie.

I'm passionate about technology, design, music, and culture; you can reach me at @dilipsrajan.

I love to build and create — here's what I've worked on lately:


A community built around curating the best articles on the web. (Desktop and mobile-friendly web app built with Rails)


Partnered with @alokedesai to build a multi-platform mobile app that plays music by artists who are originally from your current location.
Winner of the 1st place Microsoft Prize at the Fall 2014 PennApps Hackathon.


Team-up with other users to create crowdsourced rap lyrics. Built for a class project with @sclarawu and @VonDerpenberg

Evolution of Bollywood Music

Led the creation and marketing of a viral music video highlighting Bollywood classics over the ages. Reached 1,000,000 views in 10 days and led to a performance at the Indian International Film Awards for a live audience of 30,000.

Art & Design

The following pieces are a mix of photo-manipulations, mixed media, and digital paintings created in Photoshop.


These photos were part of a project that sought to capture both the visual and emotional experience of visiting various locations in Manhattan. They were taken on a smartphone camera and edited in Photoshop.
