Goa, India

Bio: I am originally from Goa, India's smallest state, but was born and raised in Muscat, Oman. Driven by my passion for food and people, I returned to India to pursue my undergraduate degree in Hospitality Management. After working for a few years with hospitality chains including Hyatt Hotels and Walt Disney World, I decided to try my hand at Management Consulting in Dubai. My experience involved working with various government agencies and private sector clients, diagnosing organisational inefficiencies and proposing strategies to fix them.

Why did you choose Evans?: I chose Evans mainly because of Seattle. I knew that the city would satisfy the introvert in me with its abundant coffee shops and book stores. At the same time, its proximity to the great outdoors was another huge attraction! The Evans community has been the greatest gift over the last year particularly, the staff, faculty and my fellow student's willingness to help.
