A bit about me personally…whilst I am fuelled by my passion for health and safety of mankind in specific design safety in construction, my number one fuel would be being a family man. I also have four languages under my belt: English, Hindi, Urdu and Gujarati. I really enjoy travelling which led me in a former role to accept the challenge of managing onsite health & safety in the oil fields of the lifeless Arabian deserts and offshore (man-made islands) on the coast of the UAE.

I have several other interests, but of late I have been spending quite a bit of time in various volunteering roles to give back to the community. I truly believe volunteering can be great for wellbeing. I also love cricket and have been playing and watching it for as long as I can remember! Howzat!
