In the past four decades, I have lived in various locations in India, the US (Minneapolis and San Francisco Bay Area) and the UK (London).
Following a six year stint in the US, I moved back to India in 2011. I worked in the e-commerce start-up industry, following which I have stuck to my passion for Product Management, retail and new business strategy & development.
I have an MBA from the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan. I am a technopreneurship startup advisor and enjoy solving complexity in Omnichannel internet products. I blog occasionally, write short stories, spar at the intellectual level with like-minded people on politics, religion and philosophy, practice yoga and meditation, do drawing and painting, gardening and stamp collecting. I am warming up to becoming an organic farmer by 2020.
In 2015, I self-published a book of fiction based on the teachings of the Bhagavad Gita, and am now working on my next.
I live with my family in Bangalore, India.

About the Logo
This picture was created out of a whim...some intuition! Probably my biggest strength. It was done possibly to represent themes and stories that interest me in life...and of course, with a desire to have a personal logo.
The white shell belonged to my grandfather who used it for his morning prayers. One can place water in its cavity and pour it over images of God in a smooth stream. I love anything that has a story, a reason, antiquity and an emotional connect.
The background picture in the logo is that of a handwoven Indian straw mat, once common in all households as a sleeping aid. Growing up as a child, I had the best sleep on these otherwise uncomfortable sheets laid out on a hard surface. Keeps me grounded....reminds me of where I came from!
The green stone was picked by me among other rocks during a kayak trip in Lake Superior. This was the first stone that caught my attention in the pristine waters. Shining like a gemstone among other colored rocks, I picked it up and couldn't let it go! Colored rocks in a clear stream of water give me peace! I have no reason why? This rock was collected during a trekking expedition in the first week of me landing in Michigan for doing my MBA studies.
The round shaped rudraksha has spirituality and an ancient Hindu mystique to it. For me, it is a wonderful fruit from a rare tree. Anything difficult to get and revered attracts my deepest attention and curiosity.
The background photograph behind my name and the logo is that of a waterfall taken from an elevated scenic spot in Wayanad, Kerala. I love the Western Ghats during the monsoon season! Mesmerizing, spiritual, peaceful...
