Ukulele

When I’m not working, which is a shocking amount of the time, you can find me singing at any of the city’s karaoke bars, or dodging BEST buses on my bright orange bicycle. I’m a numismatist, which means I collect old coins and have very few friends. I’m also an amateur ukulele player and I go out of my way to slide that fact into every conversation I have. My most prized possession is a 2nd Century BC Mauryan punch-marked copper coin, which I, to the best of my knowledge, purchased legally.

Education

I attended Saint Xavier’s College, Fort from 2012-2015 earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Mass Media, with a specialisation in Advertising. During my time in college, when I wasn’t frequenting the local bars or making the most of government-subsidised rail pass, I served in the Student Council, was contingent leader of a major college festival, created a documentary on the Bombay Riots of 1992, and chaired a model United Nations conference. I also won several inter-college events, including one for acapella; a testament to my beautiful voice.

Urbane Magazine

Was A Columnist For Urbane

Lifebuoy Soap

Was The Face Of Lifebuoy In '02

If you think I look familiar, it could be because my devilishly average face was on the packaging of Lifebuoy soap in the early 2000s. This is completely true; ask anyone you like…

Triple H

Shook Hands With Triple H

I had the immense pleasure of meeting Mr. H himself back in 2017 when he came to my office for a conference. Look at how big our biceps are.
