About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Explore horizons, push limits and spread love

ABOUT ME

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 (https://www.facebook.com/Suraksha2008) 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.
