About Me

my life as a scuba instructor

Hi! I’m Viraj. Thanks for stopping by. I am an open water scuba instructor and a digital marketer who decided to jump out of the rat race.

Pune, India is where I was born and have spent the majority of my life. Since childhood, I have always been drawn to nature and despised the concrete jungle.

My hobbies include trekking, surfing, diving, writing, reading, cooking, and travelling. I was lucky enough to turn one of my hobbies, Scuba diving into a livelihood.

I lived in Pondicherry, which is a beautiful French town in India for about two years, working full-time as a scuba instructor. After which, I decided to be a digital nomad.

Environmental conservation is the field which majorly interests me, and I am enthusiastic and looking forward to work for an organisation involved in it.

Looking at the current state of affairs, I believe environmental conservation should be of utmost importance but is not given the attention it deserves. I would love to bring forward current and emerging environmental issues in front of the masses through my skill set of marketing, communication, creative writing, photography and videography.

I created TheGeekyTraveler Blog to share my travel stories through my lens and words.
