I was born in London, and grew up in the United States, the son of Indian immigrants who had left India in 1962. I developed a passion for science and technology at an early age. My role models were the classical renaissance thinkers and inventors like Michelangelo, Leonardo Da Vinci, Edison, Franklin, Tesla, and Einstein, who could wear many hats and do it well. The late 1970’s and early 1980’s were a time when Apple and Microsoft were fledgling start-ups and computers as tools were just coming into homes. During this period, I taught myself to program at the age of 13 on a Apple II. I used these skills to create a computer software company producing products for real estate agents and educational purposes by the age of 15. I was fortunate enough to be recognized for my hard work with scholarships from Rockwell International, Washington University Scholars Program in Medicine, Fluor Daniels Engineering, University of California Berkeley merit scholarship including an award from the Independent Press Telegram for business entrepreneurship that was presented by Ray Bradbury. My natural curiosity and quest to be the Renaissance man drove me to the Scholars Program in Medicine at Washington University in St. Louis where I was able to complete my undergraduate work in 3.5 years. I subsequently went on to pursue a career in medicine, graduating from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis in 1993. My initial journey was a quest to heal with a different kind of steel (not microchips), so I trained in General Surgery and did a Vascular Surgical Research Fellowship at the University of California in Los Angeles. I completed my training with a fellowship in Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery. After completing my training, I was privileged to practice in Denver as a board certified Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgeon. In addition to routine coronary artery bypass cases, I specialized in mitral valve repair, endovascular aortic surgery, and was trained as a Da Vinci Robotic surgeon. Despite having everything, my ambition to learn and heal the world was not being realized. In 2011, my journey came full circle, back to the land of my forefathers, to use my original computer talents and my knowledge of healthcare to scale the reach of medical care to 7 billion people on the planet. Along with my better half, Madhuri Dixit, an accomplished actress and dancer in India, we created RnM Moving Pictures which is a platform agnostic, digital media and content creation company. The premise was simple: all screens would converge and that the person who controlled the content would control everything. Within healthcare, I am actively involved in the community trying to spur innovation in healthcare delivery. Ultimately it is to make a difference in the lives of others and improve the practice of medicine, worldwide, to international, evidence based standards by empowering the patient and extending the doctor’s reach. I am currently developing a medical platform and apps system in addition to collaborating with peers such a GoQii, where I am the chief medical officer. I am an avid sports enthusiast who engages in tennis and cross-country running and was a varsity athlete in high school. I have bungee jumped, skied, surfed, hiked, mountain biked, sailed, and is PADI open water dive certified. I believe that life is all about balance and staying in great shape and living up to our full potential: it is about building the ecosystem and helping those around you to do the same.
