About

I have always been passionate about traveling, exploring and being at new places whenever an opportunity arose. I hold a masters degree in tourism but what intrigues me more is paths less traveled. I gave up my MBA job and have taken to the life of a freelancer. While it has its limitations, I feel good to be my be free and not be bound by office hours! The best mornings of my life are when I wake up to find myself in the middle of a jungle, a backpacking hostel in a different city or just a lovely lonely beach. The perfect evenings are when the sun sets in a new horizon and I know that something new will be waiting for me the next morning. My idea of work is crafting the best ways to tell a story that will inspire others, in any way it is meant to.

Apart from being a travel blogger and photographer, I am also associated with animal rescue and wildlife conservation across India.

I am currently based in Bhubaneshwar, Odisha, India but would love to embark on a new journey. I take up all kinds of travel assignments, be it a hotel review or an article on sustainable travel issues. In 2016, I backpacked across Europe covering six countries and bringing back loads of photographs. Since then, I have never been at home for more than 2 weeks at a stretch. I am continuously trying to reach new places, be it a village in the fringes of the city, an event in the neighboring states or a travel opportunity to somewhere further.

I also host periodic photography workshops and camps to raise interest among participants, coming from all walks of life and belonging to a wide age group. You can always contact me for group camps through this website.
