Having been brought up between Bali and London, I spent my childhood surfing, exploring monkey forests and learning how to communicate in Bahasa Indonesia.

I've graduated from the London School of Economics, and studied a journalism course at Harvard, with a year at Central St Martins for that added creativity. I've worked at The Guardian and Al Jazeera English.

I decided to return to my Indian roots to show India redefining itself through its art, history, culture, food and nightlife.

My nomadic tendencies have often led me to wake up at night, pack my signature red suitcase and book a trip to an exotic metropolis somewhere.

I currently live in India's melting pot, Mumbai.
