“I noticed how people stood up a little straighter, and saw themselves differently, when they learned that their voices mattered. ” – Barack Obama.

I care deeply about making people’s voices heard and matter. I believe in the individual’s ability to create meaningful change and aspire to be that change-maker wherever I am. Inspired by YouTube’s educational impact, I co-founded Comet to help everyone discover the best educational content online, recommended by people they trust. I quickly learned how hard building a consumer social startup is. Prior to this, I spent three years in early-stage VC and impact investing, striving to improve education access and quality for millions of children in India. I am more than my resume, my jobs or grades – we all are.

Other than Barack Obama, I love investigative journalism, scientific fiction, historical fiction, Sirius Black, indie music, running and planks.
