My Story

Some time ago I decided to follow in my father’s footsteps by becoming an entrepreneur. He was a role model for me: an immigrant from India who started his own delivery business in the Bronx in the early 1980s. He worked hard and very long hours at his business for thirty years. Together with my amazing mother, who was the pioneer in our family by being the first to come to the U.S. on her own, he succeeded in providing his children with love, values, and extraordinary educational opportunities that allowed us to flourish.

With that inspiration in mind—and motivated by devastating political environments for marginalized communities around the world—I am committed to offering superior consulting services to nonprofits and corporations that make a positive and lasting difference in people’s lives, shape public policy for the betterment of all, and keep the arc of the moral universe bending towards justice.
