About

Someplace Else started as a personal blog in 2003. It’s my safe place to reflect, share inspirations and connect with stories across 4 countries in the last 13 years. I write about culture and growing up.

Where am I from? I’ve lived in India, U.K., Germany and visited about 30 countries across the world for business and travel. I’m beginning to believe that I’m destined to move around. I just moved to my fourth country to Ann Arbor, Michigan in the United States.

Collaborative ideas: I enjoy collaborating and creating new things with interesting people and brands. If you’d like to connect on a story, do not hesitate to reach me.

  1. Hi,
    Greetings from Airpush India Pvt Ltd
    I am writing to you in regards with your website, I was going through the same felt that you have an excellent site with quality content.I also see that you have healthy traffic and was wondering if you would like to monetize this traffic in a productive/non-disruptive way. We have various types of ad formats aimed at apps and mobile websites that might interest you.
    It would really be helpful if you could provide me the contact details of the concerned person handling advertising activities.
