Sports Software Technology, Sports Management &

Training, Gaming & Publishing, Photography, and Wildlife Conservation led me to create various brands including Kaadoo® - Nature & Wildlife Themed Games & Merchandise.

All these interests apart, Ifind solitude and solace in photography that has led to the desire to help neglected wild species to survive and thrive in an ever-changing environment. The 'People for Paapa' campaign with BOSCH-RBEI/CSR is one such initiative that is very close to myheart.

My passion is to share knowledge gained over years of on-field professional experience in photography, that has been imbibed by many aspiring enthusiasts who have gone on to become leading cinematographers, and film makers. My speaking engagements at various corporate entities viz. HP, Microsoft, Bosch etc., and at TEDx, PEP Summit, DCP Expeditions & NiF events received a great deal of appreciation.

I am also a visiting faculty at the Mindscreen Film Institute, Chennai and the first wildlife photographer to be included on SONY India's "Artisan" panel. My engagement with HP large-format photo-printers, Manfrotto & GITZO brands of photographic accessories continue.
