He joined Taj Safaris and became a skilled naturalist, working in renowned MP national parks for a decade. He has played a pivotal role in training the Pardhee tribe for eco-tourism, shifting them from poaching. His passion lies in birding, observing big cat behavior, and creating native fish ecosystems through aquascaping.
