Personal
Single with a huge bias towards anything that you could classify as a machine – lawnmowers, motorcycles, cars, aircrafts, ships, and everything that moves! Love driving 100 miles just for a cup of hot chocolate! Guilty of crimes against my health through my profound love for chocolates! A glass of wine and Netflix at the end of the day is my winding down routine! A petrolhead, geek, and a wine connoisseur – the combination cannot get any more interesting!

Favourite football team
Football is fun and alright, but cricket is life!

Musical performer
A R Rahman

Movie
Not a movie, but the legendary series – Peaky Blinders

Books
Blue ocean strategy and everything by Dan Brown

Best motoring moment
This was when I was a motorsport racer back in 2014, when I dropped my Super Sport motorcycle due to me losing my balance while engaging the side stand of my motorcycle at the paddock. The hilarious part is that I had been on the track for two hours straight driving at 200km/h but managed to fall off while I was trying to get off the motorcycle at the end of the session in the garage.

Best business advice you’ve ever received?
Turnover is vanity, profit is sanity, and cashflow is reality!
