at Anmod Ghat, Mollem National Park, Goa, India.

I am based in Goa (India).


Nature watching has been my passion since high school, It started with collecting and reading newspaper cuttings and old magazines on nature and wildlife, eventually i started with photo documenting Butterflies from 2006 in the forests of Goa & North Karnataka (India), mostly in the Netravali Wildlife Sanctuary (Goa) & the edges of Kali Tiger Reserve, i provided data on butterfly diversity to the Goa Forest Department for the management plan of this wildlife sanctuary, and later added on Birds photography and documentation from 2010 (also covering butterflies and other flora and fauna).


In 2018 i started with photo documentation of Spiders and Orchids. Through this web page, I hope to share my journey through images and small write ups from time to time.

I am thankful to Paresh Porob for being an amazing mentor throughout and Dr. Deepak Deshpande for consistently nurturing my love for spiders.
