He joined Ra-Ve’s board as the Vice President in 2018, with a desire to build awareness and appreciation for Indian classical and folk music. “The Northwest Arkansas area is blessed with a vibrant music scene and my goal is to bring greater diversity to the landscape”.
He brings with him a wealth of knowledge both in the private and non-profit sectors in the NWA region with over 20 years of experience working in Asia and US across various industries including commodity trading, airlines and retail. In addition, he most recently served as the Treasurer of another non-profit, the Hindu Association of Northwest Arkansas (HANWA)
