Short Bio: I was born in India and educated in the US, where I worked as a Global Product Manager managing multimillion dollar accounts in the auto industry before getting my MBA from Harvard. After getting my business degree, I worked in finance in New York.

In April 2012, I moved to Berlin and founded an innovative travel search called GoEuro. It is one of the most innovative start-ups in Berlin, with over $4M in seed financing from top tier VCs such as Battery Ventures and Hasso Plattner Ventures, and industry leaders Dave Baggett (Founder of ITA Software) and other airline and travel executives from around the world. I enjoy interacting with young start-ups that are based in Berlin and I am an expert in strategy, amortization, and fund raising.

I enjoy the sun, but miss it here in Berlin. I also like to pencil sketch and play outdoor basketball.
