About Me


Explore horizons, push limits and spread love


Travel is my drug. There is nothing like traveling to a distant destination and absorb the warmth of the local people, their language, customs and cultures. I am fortunate to have traveled around the world for health infrastructure, sustainable development and disaster relief projects. I work on technology innovations that improve global health outcomes and increase universal access to healthcare. I also mentor and fund social entrepreneurs who aim to transform the lives of millions around the world. I also run an NGO called Suraksha (suraksha-ngo.org) which focuses on educating and empowering girls with disabilities in South East India. I enjoy the outdoors, live music, adventure sports, comedy clubs, playing tennis & soccer.


"For long you live and high you fly
And smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry
And all you touch and all you see
Is all your life will ever be" - PF
