About

Hi! Here’s a little more about me!

I’m a reader. Story lover. Science maniac. Information junkie. Grammar nut. I obsess over details and worship deadlines. I like my writing to be concise and clear.

I’ve lived most of my life in Bangalore, a cool (in every way!) city in South India. I got myself a Master’s degree in Energy Engineering from one of the top schools of India, and later worked in the software industry for four years.

Shortly after my daughter was born, I decided to change tracks and I became a writer.

I have been writing for over 10 years now. I have published 4 books for children, one of them an award-winning chapter book. My short fiction has won multiple writing awards, and has been published widely, both in print and online. My essays on travel, science, culture, lifestyle, parenting have been published in National Geographic Traveller India, Huffington Post, BLink, Scroll.in, Livemint, Deccan Herald, The Hindu among others.  I have worked with NGOs to develop content for children.

I edit science research papers, resumes, college applications and fiction manuscripts, and am also an editor at an international literary magazine. I love editing — to clean up the writing of my clients, to tie up loose ends, and present the matter so that it is just right.

Much of the writing that I have been doing for the past ten years requires in-depth research, talking to and interviewing experts, and understanding new concepts quickly and communicating them in a way that everybody can understand.

I’ve been in the beautiful SF Bay Area since 2015. I love books, trees, food, music, travelling and hiking.

Any more questions? I’d be happy to answer them! Contact me!
