Where did you work before Trinity Ventures?

My career has been a mash-up of tech, celebrity and entertainment. A former entrepreneur myself, I founded DesiHits!, a multimedia platform driving diversity in global pop culture. Through my company I successfully introduced artists like Lady Gaga 50 cent and Britney Spears to India and launched Bollywood star, Priyanka Chopra with my partner/investor Jimmy Iovine in the U.S. Prior to founding Desi Hits!, my background was in tech venture search. I became an investor/advisor to numerous startups further igniting my longstanding love affair with technology

What unique contributions do you make to the team and the portfolio?

I have a long history of counseling entrepreneurs, working with them to create brands that will shape our lives and helping them connect to a broad network that I’ve cultivated across tech, entertainment and celebrities. As part of my job at Trinity, I help our portfolio companies become truly global brands as well as work to further Trinity’s campaign for greater diversity in tech. I believe that together we can seed an incredible global culture as technology and entertainment have the capacity to change the world in amazingly positive ways.

What do you do when not working?

Not to sound like Miss World 😉 but I am very passionate about philanthropy. Currently, I sit on the advisory board of the United Nation Foundation’s Girl Up Campaign which funds U.N. programs promoting the health, safety, education and leadership of girls in developing countries. I’m also an avid Bollywood dancer, love to ski and my major passion project is managing super star Priyanka Chopra.
