When not editing I follow my other passions – writing, photography, keeping updated on copyrights and intellectual laws, digital archiving and technologies, cooking, travel, checking out hole-in-the-wall restaurants and playing squash.
Though I live in Washington DC now, I was born and brought up in Bombay, and trace my roots to a small, non-descript village in Kerala. I spent a big chunk of my childhood in Tanzania, shuttled few years between India and Dubai, and worked in Delhi for eight years.
