Why Him

In addition to his role as the Global Health & Wellness Director for Soho House, he advises many top wellness brands, including Rumble Boxing, Eight Sleep and Watson Gym Equipment.

 

Where does your drive come from?

My mom and dad are both engineers who immigrated to the US from India in the ’60s. They worked tirelessly—multiple jobs, multiple businesses. My dad especially loved the hustle: he worked as a defense contractor, sold cast-iron products and Indian rugs, and in his spare time, he did oil painting and wrote poetry. Keeping pace with even 50% of his activities kept me and my bro pretty damn busy.

 

What daily habits keep you going?

The gym. Protein shakes. Spending time with my wife, Madison.

 

What simple change to your routine has had a profound effect on those around you?

When I stopped staying out late and pointlessly socializing, and started focusing more on things I liked to do, I noticed that I made better choices, both professionally and personally. I focused more on experiences than bullshit. And people around me seemed to smile more.
