About Me

With varied interests across a spectrum of fields, i'm something of a creative polymath who believes in balancing wisdom with a beginner's mind. Always hungry for learning and unlearning, some of the things that keep me busy include:

Besides primary language English, I also speak Portuguese, Spanish, French, German, Hindi, Marathi and Gujarati.
