Primarily from an accounting and finance background and having worked for a financial services company in Bangalore for over 6 years, I dropped out of the rat race and headed for greener pastures – well quite literally. In 2011, I started working in the Bilgiri Rangaswamy Temple Tiger Reserve in Karnataka for a community based eco tourism initiative where 100% of the profits go towards sustainable tribal development. Working here helped me build a greater understanding of areas where humans and wildlife share the same space. Currently I am working on understanding human elephant conflict around the Hassan region in Karnataka.
