About Me


I am a photojournalist and travel writer. I travel around the world documenting and writing about various people, cultures, and lifestyles.


I am a photojournalist and travel writer based in New Delhi.

My twin jobs of photography and writing have me traveling for much of the year. Needless to say, love to meet new people , acquaint myself with new cultures and lifestyles . My writing and photojournalism requires me have a more intimate experience of the places I travel to. Thats where couchsurfing helps. It take you out of the sanitized comfort of a hotel and makes you see a place first -hand and raw.

You can see my travel writing and photography on my website


Live in the present, Have no beliefs only experiences.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I meet people either to surf or host or over coffee and show them around, if time permits. I am keen to learn about the person I meet - their country, lifestyle and ideas about life in general.


So far wonderful.
