I am a medical doctor by education, but an entrepreneur at heart. I started my career in the healthcare industry, having the good fortune of having an existing family business. Spending 3 years working on an online startup, I learnt the nuts and bolts of building a business in the field.
After three years, I found my heart was no longer in my family business, and wanted to find my own path. Over the next three years this journey took me deep into self-discovery. I learnt psychology and counseling, yoga therapy, energy medicine, the art of facilitation; and worked as a copywriter, workshop facilitator, and yoga teacher during this time. All this time, one question haunted me; what am I here for? The question disappeared the day I started my journey with Deep Red Ink.
Since December 2009, my four partners (two of them, Deepti Rupani and Anil Grovor are also Sanghis) and I have engaged with building Deep Red Ink. This company is hard to define, and we’re still working on an elevator pitch =).
Here’s one attempt – Deep Red Ink is a group of diverse, passionate people and skills looking for inspiring ideas to serve. Our purpose is to connect with the highest purpose of an idea and serve to bring it to life in truly beneficial ways to all.
Deep Red Ink brings together experience and skills in leadership, organization development, relationships, business strategy, marketing, design, content, software development, and online marketing to serve win-win ideas.
Currently I am deepening my passion for design, and lead the design function at Deep Red Ink. Deep Red Ink also allows me to pursue my passion for building a workplace where individual passions and organizational goals are aligned to create win-win results for all.
I currently stay in Hyderabad with my wife, Shruti, an avid animal lover, my 18-month old daughter, Niara, and our two dogs; a Great Dane called Licorice and a Labrador called All Spice (Ollie for short).
For those inclined to personality tests (I am very fascinated by them!)
Sun Sign – Leo; North Node – Leo; Enneagram Type 3 with 4 wing; MBTI – INTP.
