An architect and photographer based in Mumbai, I have been freelance writing since 2007 for newspapers and magazines, in a variety of formats - short articles, travelogues, feature length articles etc - in print and on the web.

My forte lies in travel writing, which for me is a powerful tool to expand our horizons and appreciate the diversity of histories, geographies & cultures of our world. I have had a range of travel experiences – from luxurious star hotels to mid-night hitchhiking – and my enthusiasm is limited to not only experiencing the versatility of travel but also helping others discover and experience what travel is all about.

With a background in architecture and photography, I am also passionate about cities & urban histories, design and the arts. My writing pieces are supplemented by high quality visual imagery that complements the writing and completes the story being told.
