MY LIFE
I am named after a Bollywood actress from the 60s.

I wanted to grow up & be a cashier.

I trekked around the Himalayas with my mother.

I do not know how to parallel park, whistle or keep a plant alive.

I have been sneezed on by a horse & an elephant, but only spit on by a camel.

I camped in a tent at 16,000 feet, slept in a Maasi hut & napped in a Bedouin cave. 

I have been threatened with getting shot by the Secret Service for trying to get too close to President Clinton.

I went to Russia as a 13-year-old on a student exchange program right after the fall of the USSR. My favorite meal was at the first ever McDonald’s in Moscow.

I started off as an Art Director in advertising before cleansing my soul & becoming a humanitarian photographer.

I founded KIOO Project to change gender dynamics in economically challenged communities by teaching photography to girls. The girls then teach the boys.

I hate arugula.
