How I do it


I'm passionate about building platforms (for learning, intellectual discourse, personal growth & collaboration) and designing systems (for efficiency, assessment & user-friendliness)


I'm keen on 'Making Things Happen' by enabling people, processes and projects. By acting as an Anchor, I'm able to add meaningful value and create significant impact to any initiative.


I grew up thinking & doing a variety of Experiments (side gigs/projects). Some of my significant experiments include FailFest, TEDxSecunderabad, Zwah, Hangout South-Asia and Twestival.
