As a child, I could count to 10 in Bengali. My family lived in Calcutta and my early memories are of cows wandering down dusty roads.

And so began a life of exploring. With a notebook, pen, camera and computer, my explorations continued across New England, Virginia, Nebraska and California.

Newswriting grants and awards helped me travel to Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Mexico, Japan and, lastly, as a Fulbright Scholar in Colombia.

I've written thousands of stories for conventional and digital publications. I believe writing is joyful and creative. I'll use my skills to tell your story in a timely, accurate and compelling manner. Contact me for writing, editing or storytelling opportunities.
