I was born and raised in New York City, where my dad still works.

 

My parents are originally from Tamil Nadu, where my family remains involved.

I am an active and ethusiastic alum of Collegiate, Harvard, CMU Philosophy, and Columbia Economics.

I (and my friends) occassionally blog about economic and financial topics.

I am an avid pianist (mainly classical and ragtime) and singer, and mediocre bass guitarist.

I also enjoy lifting, boxing, and playing basketball and squash.
