I grew up in the quiet and beautiful neighbourhood of Shivaji Park in Mumbai.
My schooling happened at the famed Bombay Scottish School where I was a rather conscientious student while my college years were spent at D. G. Ruparel College. I completed my bachelor of science in electrical engineering from Purdue University with a brilliant semester at the University of New South Wales. I followed it with a master of science in management from Lancaster University, a post graduate program in management from Indian School of Business, and a post MBA master in international management from Thunderbird School of Global Management. And yes, there is a simple explanation to this. I love campus life.
I started my professional career as an engineer at Rockwell Collins in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Once the monotony got to me, I returned to join our family business in Mumbai, where I have been ever since. After stints in brand consulting and corporate video production, I have recently transitioned into the world of entertainment.
My foray into the world of writing happened in 2003 after a dream compelled me to stumble out of bed and put pen to paper. But that book is yet to be written. Meanwhile, I happily string words together in my quest for Nirvana.
I enjoy collecting old coins, reading fiction, producing films (click here to watch Freedom of Expression, a short film I wrote and produced), watching movies, and listening to music. I am also keenly interested in the subjects of psychology, mythology and ancient history.
