Born and brought up in Shimla gave him a natural affinity towards nature. Having to trudge 6kms to and fro from school right from class 1 introduced a natural love for trekking to him and to discover different routes in the hill city.
Since then, a normal routine soon developed into a profession in 2006 when he took to trekking and outdoor camping as a serious hobby. He has travelled the length and breadth of the country and also travelled to the US. He has a great experience in outdoor adventure, camping and trekking. His profession has been marketing and strategy planning since 1991.
