I am Gaurav - I am a software engineer & product manager by day and build side projects that interest me by night. I love running, hiking to experience nature, swimming in the oceans and jumping off planes.
I have a startup mindset, think global, work well in diverse & multicultural teams & ask tons of questions. I have previously lived in New York, Stockholm, Bangalore & Mexico City and have been around the world as a digital nomad for a couple of years.
I built a company called Merchii in Stockholm, Sweden which brought e-commerce and inspiration together by giving publishers a tool to tag their beautiful images with products; we sold the company to a media startup in New York in '14. I continue to work in the visual search space as we make Markable successful.
I am excited about building innovative sustainable technology companies that have a real world impact and solve a meaningful problem and have a solid business model.
I love learning new things, be it dance, music, sports and travel the world to experience different cultures with a focus on listening to perspectives that I don't necessarily agree with.
I grew up in a musical family and hence play the Indian drum called Tabla in a Hindustani music context and perform once in a while.
I am adventurous - skydive, freedive, surf; I used to be a competitive swimmer as a kid; and start my day with a espresso macchiato.
