I love that technology has brought the world closer. When I first left India it was quite easy to miss my family, but now I have multiple ways of easily keeping in touch with them via video calls and photos. Technology is so creative, and I have been able to come up with many ideas to improve and automate tasks and make my day-to-day work easier.
My day typically starts at 7am, when I put on some music and get ready for work. I don’t have to wear a suit to work, which is great, so I pick whatever is ironed in my wardrobe that is suitable. I grab a skinny latte and breakfast on the way to work. I usually read on my commute, or catch-up with family and friends via social media. I get the tube and am normally in the St Paul’s office by 9.30am. I work in an open plan space and my business partners are located in NYC, Chicago, London and Hyderabad.
