(Not) About Me

7 not-relevant facts about me…

  1. Wife gave birth to our first child (Yodhi) on June 19th, 2018!  Yea Hoo!!!
  2.   Grew up listening to Western Classical music, but favorite artist is Youssou N'Dour from Senegal.
  3.   Once fell for a girl who ran away with the Circus.  Seriously.
  4.   Played drums in a popular LA roots/rock band for 5 years. 
  5.   Favorite first line of a poem: “Last night, we kissed for 3 weeks...” 
  6.   Occasionally appears in Bollywood films speaking Hindi.
  7.   Frequently tells [what was] Fred Rogers’ (aka Mr. Rogers) favorite joke. 

Ok. I'm a portrait photographer based in Mumbai, India + travel multiple times a year for commercial/corporate/editorial assignments and personal projects. I was also an adjunct professor of photography at The S.I. Newhouse School, Syracuse University + my first book "Living the Dream: The Life of the 'Bollywood' Actor" (HarperCollins) is on the shelves in most book stores. 
My happiest days are being in the creative maze and finding my way around.
