I was always fascinated by nature and wildlife from a very early age. I grew up around the Western Ghats of India, which is one of world’s ten hottest biodiversity locations. I often used to visit the lush green rainforests of the ghats that helped me embrace the wilderness and build an invincible passion towards wildlife.
I slowly drew my attention into photography as I grew up. I picked up my first camera after coming to the United States in 2006 for a master’s degree in Engineering. After working for several years with Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, I went ahead and got my MBA from University of Baltimore’s Merrick School of Business and I'm currently serving as the Director of Information Systems at North Carolina State University.
Apart from my professional life, I make it a point to get out with my camera into the several wildlife refuges that are an integrated part of the east coast of United States. Being in the wilderness is like meditation to me that helps energize my soul and mind. I also travel to Florida every year to photograph several different species of birds that dwell in Florida’s wetlands. I believe that Wildlife Photography has a very gentle learning curve, where everyday gives me a feeling that there is so much to learn and explore.
After being in the United States for more than 12 years, I have travelled to over 30 states with road trips covering major National Parks of America. With a heart of an explorer, I never miss the slightest change to hit the road and click the shutter of my camera.
