On a personal note...

I was born in Mumbai (India), studied in five different schools in five different cities in Maharashtra (a state in India) and then joined Mumbai University for graduation. I started my career in corporate sector in India with Hindustan Unilever Ltd, later moved on to work with Clariant Ltd and then with Syngenta. While working with Clariant in India, I got an opportunity to move to Headquarters in Basel, Switzerland in 2005 and since then I am living here in Basel with my family...

I play different roles in my personal life...

I am a son, a brother, a husband and a father. Four ladies in my life, my mother, my elder sister, my wife and my daughter gave different meaning and shape to my life. It is my daughter “Reva” who helped me to reconnect with that inner-child in me. I believe “I am a child full of life…energetic, curious, continuously learning, growing, and living in this moment!”

I am passionate about...

Self-development and believe in living life to its full potential. I love sports (especially Cricket), any music which gives me joy, delicious food and travelling to different places.

I love coaching because...

Coaching has presented me a wonderful opportunity to be in the services of humanity.  I met lot of amazing people on this journey, we learnt from each other and grew as a human being.

I want to meet you & know you. I invite you to CONNECT with me because I want you to show up in your life!
