About Me

CURRENT MISSION

autonomous togetherness

ABOUT ME

I bond with people over experiences, food and drink. Love the outdoors, live music, good stories and crazy adventures!

I have a big Indian family that I love to no end. Having lived in the US for 8 years, I have both found and lost myself. I am traditional but extremely open minded, often serious but always plotting schemes and jokes, I'm a hippy but I'm dapper, a lover and hater of gossip and conspiracy - full of contradictions yet very simple.

I am a firm believer that true passion makes anything happen and am lucky to have found that passion early, in helping India and the world build sustainable infrastructure. My first battle is at the intersection of organic waste and renewable energy.

PHILOSOPHY

True passion combined with positivism in thinking, attitude and action yields great results
