Hello! I have been playing chess from the age of 6, and have won 11 International medals for India in Commonwealth, Asian and World Championships.

The titles FIDE awarded was the Grand Master title in 2016 and the FIDE Trainer title in February 2019.

My chess pursuits have taken me across the globe. One of the most significant time I spent outside India was in the U.S, where I spent 6 years (2012-18) honing my academic and chess skills in St.Louis, Missouri.

In the academic front, the highest degree I obtained was the MA in Management and Leadership, with a certificate in Business Analytics in May 2018, from Webster University(St.Louis, Missouri). You can find more about my academic accomplishments here.

Outside of active chess play, I worked as a Product Manager in an ed-tech startup. I have also actively contributed to leading chess magazines and websites. You can find more about my other accomplishments here.

In June 2019, I started Chess Gyaan Academy in Bangalore, so that I can share my love for the game to all the chess enthusiasts, so if you are looking for chess lessons, visit my academy page
