Samir is first and foremost a traveler, with a passion for India and its people. His work life is an extension of this passion. He has spent the last decade running a community owned eco-tourism enterprise in Kumaon, Uttarakhand.
During his time in the hills, he worked closely with village and forest communities to design new approaches to adventure travel and experiential learning. He also has extensive experience as a corporate trainer and a facilitator of in-formal education for children.
He recently founded Deep Dive India, an education start-up which creates Immersive Learning Programs to bridge classroom education with direct on field experiences.
