Abhishek studied civil engineering at the National University of Singapore under the SIA-NOL government scholarship, after which he landed a job in corporate finance with Procter & Gamble. But that wasn’t the career for this nonconformist.
A switch to journalism followed and Abhishek spent the next decade in Singapore where he led editorial teams at ESPN StarSports, Fox Sports and NewsCorp. In 2015, he returned to campus to do a Master’s in International Relations at the Rajaretnam School of International Relations.
He moved back to India in 2018, and worked briefly with Network 18.
Abhishek is a sports and history buff. At Confluence, among other things, he leads a prestigious project to retell contemporary Indian history through newly sourced archival material.
