(Not) About Me

7 not-relevant facts about me…

    1. Currently reading "The Anarchy" by William Dalrymple
    2.   Frequently tells [what was] Fred Rogers’ (aka Mr. Rogers) favorite joke. 
    3.   Once fell for a girl who ran away with the Big Apple Circus. 
    4.   Played drums in the band "50 Cent Haircut" (Knitting Factory Records) for 5 years. 
    5.   Favorite first line of a poem: “Last night, we kissed for 3 weeks...” 
    6.   Was a founding member of Soho House Mumbai.

I'm a portrait photographer/ advertising director based in Mumbai, India + travel multiple times a year for commercial/corporate/editorial assignments + 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.
