I was born and raised in India and moved to the United States in 1991. While getting a Bachelors Degree in English Literature from the City University of New York, I dabbled in Photography and took some courses on the side. I was hooked! In the very first Photography class I took, as I watched the print emerge in the Darkroom, my Instructor said, “It’s Magic.” It truly felt like that, and it’s a feeling I still get when I produce something special.
After getting a Bachelors Degree in 1994, I went on to do Masters in Photojournalism from the University of Missouri-Columbia and graduated in 1997. I was hired soon after to work as Picture Editor in Communications at National Geographic Society in Washington, D.C. When my first son was born in 2001, I decided to take some time off to be a mom. After three kids and a move across the country in 2007, I now live in San Ramon, California.
I love photography, storytelling, and inspiration in every shape and form, and I dabble in poetry. I started In Pursuit of Pictures in 2009. I specialize in creating inspiring Photo Stories that are a unique blend of my expertise in photography, writing and editing.
