Worked for 30 years in the Travel industry and IT sector .The last assignment as CIO of Serco India. A life changing experience led to a change in lifestyle.
Fitness became a major focus of life and walking and cycling became part of the daily routine, my love for the mountains pulled me to start exploring the Himalayas. My first short trek was daunting but rewarding. This led to taking on the difficult high altitude treks in India and Nepal.
