Hailing from the Himalayas, Vaibhav is a mountain boy at heart. Quite ironically, he went to work as a marine engineer sailing on merchant ships, covering 10+ countries and working with over seven nationalities.
Vaibhav realized early on during his voyages that he was more fascinated by the business side of things and shifted from sailing on ships to managing a business for those ships. Across the two roles, he has almost three years of experience.
When he is not working, he is often found running, swimming, working out, or playing football. He also loves to spend Sunday evenings listening to poetry or old Hindi music, preferably while cooking up a healthy meal.
