I am a freelance writer and blogger currently based in Goa, India.  

My work has appeared in TIME, The Guardian Weekly, Marie Claire, Christian Science Monitor, The National (UAE), Wall Street Journal, Hindustan Times, FirstPost, DNA, Mint, The Asian Age, Deccan Chronicle, Bucks Free Press, India Today Travel Plus, Home Review, Bride & Style, Go-Getter, Windows & Aisles and Soul & Spirit magazine, among others.

I like writing about travel, green issues, design, literacy, books and lifestyles, but welcome enquiries about articles on most topics. For samples of my work, please see the 'Portfolio' section. 

I have a degree in Psychology from one of India's best colleges - St. Xaviers, Mumbai.
