Product Manager, OVAI
Tapas grew up playing cricket and badminton in the deserts of Rajasthan, India and went on to study Physics at Birla Institute of Technology & Science, Pilani. Over the last 14 years, he has worked in fashion, travel, consulting, and fintech as a frontend developer, designer & a product manager. Additionally, he also founded 3 startups, including his current one (called "Closer") which is a card game where players ask each other questions to have better conversations.
The principles he follows in product management and in everyday life are a blend of lessons he has learned from buddhism, stoicism, traveling and meditation.
He is a certified divemaster, and loves to dive in the warm tropical waters of southeast Asia. He now lives in Berlin where he enjoys running, thinking, reading, and cooking. He cooks a mean curry, which normally heals mental and physical ailments of most people that consume it. Say hello to Tapas, if you crave yummy food or meaningful conversations.
