RANDOM FACTS

(In his own words)


I once aspired to be a spacesuit designer.



I was first on a path to be a space engineer. I aced physics in high school. Until I discovered an old NASA archive book and became obsessed with spacesuit design. And then, advertising happened. (I know — it’s anti-climactic)


I occasionally host personal, private dinners.


It started with my obsession with handcrafted pastas and cutting fish with Yanagibas. Then friends started inviting me to their kitchens to host private dinners.

I am hyperosmic and collect fragrances.


Out of all five (six) senses — I connect most deeply with smell. I collect essences, candles, perfumes, incenses from all my travels around the world as sensory, sentimental artifacts.
