On a typical weekend, you will find me…
For me, work is play and play is work. So that really defines my take on work-life balance, and hence, on most Saturdays, you will find me in the office. Sundays are different. Some days are spent with friends and family, some are spent introspecting, and understanding how I can be a better person and professional, and enjoying some quality ‘me time’.

My idea of relaxing is…
I’m a complete water soul, so my idea of relaxing is swimming and lying on the beach. I can spend hours in the pool.

One vice I cannot do without…
Junk food! I once ate pizza for every meal, for 14 days in a row.

An adventure I love…
I love anything that gives me an adrenaline rush. Be it zip lining, or scuba diving, bungee jumping, or skydiving, I’m there.

I confess I am a…
Workaholic. There’s no such thing as a 9-6 day in the life of an entrepreneur.

I spend me-time on…
Swimming, learning and giving back.

The last show I binge-watched…
Jiro loves Sushi Candy Man, I love watching documentaries.

I can make a mean…
Dosa. The process of making dosas has always fascinated me, especially spreading the batter really fast over a hot pan, and over time, I’ve mastered it.

A skill I want to learn this year…
I really want to learn coding, as it is an important skill in the communications space. I also want to practise patience.

My next vacation will be…
Spontaneous. Whenever I have a few days free in my schedule, I go to the airport, check what flights are available, see which countries offer visa on arrival, and then decide where I am going.
